Hi, just wondering if anybody out there might be able to tell us about my wife's situation. Wife noticed some bruising under her breast about 5 months ago. She thought it might have been caused by her bra so she ignored it. It kind of looked like it was going away then but just yesterday she discovered that it's back and it's now spreading on more of her breasts. mainly under the breasts. More in her left breast. She doesn't feel any pain. We will defenetly go see a doctor but do you have any ideas?
Dear Dan: A bruise occurs when there is bleeding under the skin. The most common cause is some sort of trauma, bumping it etc. If your wife is wearing underwire bras this may contribute to this. Other causes of bruising can include certain blood problems. However, if the bruising is limited to the breast area and not all over her body, this seems less likely. Without evaluation, we cannot speculate on what this may be in her case. We recommend that she see her physician for evaluation.
