I doubt very much that the sore on your breast is related to breast cancer.
The skin of the breast is like the skin on any part of the body and subject to many abnormalities.
People with diabetes are more prone to develop infections such as boils, carbuncles, cellulitis, abscesses etc.. which are slower to heal than in people who do not have the disease.The good thing is that it’s getting better,but try not to touch it as you might make things worse.
Aside from having a Mammogram,which is of course an important test,I would advise you to see your Doctor or a Dermatologist to have a look at the sore and decide what type of medication would be needed to speed up the healing.
My mammogram has been scheduled for tomorrow. The pink area is still there. Since my post it's gotten a little smaller but it's taking its sweet time.
I thought that since my blood sugar was getting better, stuff like this would heal quicker? Maybe not.
I bruise easy and at times will forget when I injure myself. This was either a cat scratch or spider bite. Or I could have bumped into something.
I guess what gets me is I can't remember specifically getting skewered there. But when my cat and I snuggle, if I'm not careful his claws get close to that part of my breast.
Do you think they will want to do a biopsy? Will it even show up on the mammogram? I'll point it out to the technician but am worried about the outcome.
I could sure use some more encouraging words. Thank you!
You are welcome,
Well, I wish I could tell you more about this problem. These types of skin lesions need to be seen by a Doctor or a Dermatologist.I am sure one or the other will be able to figure it out and decide what steps should be taken.As I mentioned before,I doubt that it's something serious,but since it's taking time to completely heal,it's best to have the spot evaluated, just to make sure.
I can't predict if the Mammogram will show what this spot may be,but let's hope for good results. :)
