Breast pimples

I have noticed 2 pimples on my left breast where I previously had a lumpectomy 6 years ago.  Should I be concerned that I have a recurrence of  breast cancer.

They are tiny and red and were never there before.

Please reply let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks.

Hi,

You should keep the area clean, wear lose clothes and see if the pimples go away in a few days.

Pimples on the breast can occur, just like on skin anywhere else.

You should do a breast self exam and report any abnormal features that you might notice - a breast lump, skin changes or nipple discharge etc.

If the pimples do not resolve in a few days consult your physician for a clinical evaluation.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing and what does your physician advise.

Goodluck.
