Red lump on left breast

Hi i've recently come across this red dot on my left breast. It looks like a blood blister when u squeeze the skin but it doesnt break like a normal blood blister does even though it looks like its full of blood and feels slightly raised above the skin. However, I'm scared that it could be breast cancer or something similar. I check my breasts every day and they havent changed size or anything but i think this dot has come and gone in the past. Its un nerving because I'm scared to go to the doctor about it, and I just want it to go away.

Can anyone give me any advice as to what it could be?.
Thanks

Hi.I don't think anyone can tell you exactly what this red blister is, except of course a doctor who will examine you.It could very well be a cyst or a benign lump but I would advise you to have this checked out since you are worried about it.It's a good thing that you check your breasts for any abnormality but this is not enough.When you have an obvious spot like you have,you shouldn't be scared to show it to your doctor,quite the contrary,being scared is worse than finding out what this is.Please,go and have this checked out.You will have peace of mind knowing that it could be nothing to worry about after all.Best wishes.
