Im a 35 year old female, and amply endowed. Every month or so, I seem to develop what can only be described as boils on the underside of my breasts where skin meets skin. They are on the surface of the skin, not inside the breast, and stand out like a red spot. Sometimes they have yellow heads and will ooze yellow fluid. They are gone in a couple of days and sometimes I will go months without any and sometimes I get three or more every month. I assume this is more a problem with the skin and follicles getting infected rather than the breast itself, but do these put me at higher risk of developing breast cancer. I self examine regularly and have never had any lumps or cysts inside the breasts themselves. Please can you reassure me
Dear taz55, The skin on the breasts is like skin on any other part of the body and is susceptible to skin conditions such as boils, pimples, rashes etc. These types of skin conditions are not assosicated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
