Bruise on Breast

My mother found a very severe large bruise on her left breast today. She does not recall bumping into, or hitting anything. She is 46 and had a heart attack and bypass surgery a year ago. Could it be cancerous? What could it potentially be?

I recently had a similar thing on my right breast. You'd think I'd remember getting bashed in the chest but it was quite a large bruise with a lump. I called my doctor, she said I should wait a couple weeks. If it resolves on its own, then it was just a standard soft tissue injury. If the lump remained after a couple of months, then I was to go in for a mammogram. Mine gradually went away.

Perhaps your Mom leaned against something and burst a small blood vessel that caused the bruising. If she's on any kind of blood thinners, even aspirin, she will bruise more easily. There's no harm in calling her doctor for advice. That's what I did for peace of mind.
