Strange changes in L breast

I am 24 years old and a mother of 2.  I have been having a lot of changes in just my left breast. About Dec of 2011 I started having shooting pains going through both of my breast off and on. Then about two months ago I started have more pains just in my left. About 2 weeks later I noticed a sunken like line going down my breast. When I touched it felt hard, kinda like a harden blood vessel or something. I noticed that went away but I formed a different one going vertical this time above the nipple. Now, about a month ago I noticed a bruise like spot on my left breast but no sunken lines. This bruise like area has gotten a bigger and is about 4 in long and 2 - 2 1/2 in wide. Anyone heard of this or seen this happen?

what you were feeling that you described as a hardened blood vessel most likely was just that. Breast pain can have any number of causes but rarely Breast Cancer. With all the many symptoms you have had over the past year I think you should make an appointment with your Dr. for a breast exam and perhaps some type of imagery (Ultrasound) to determine the cause of all these happenings. Your Ob/GYN Physician would be a great place to start. Regards ....
