Common Questions and Answers about Left breast feels bruised

breast

Found this post dated back in 2010 that describes what is happening to me right now perfectly: "Under my left breast, at my bra line, it feels like I have a deep bruise. It doesn't feel like the rib is bruised, though it may be. It feels more like the muscle/tissue. I have large breasts but, do not wear an underwire bra. I noticed this about 4 days ago and it is not changing (better or worse).
For the past few months I have had a sensation in my left breast that feels like it is bruised; it is tender to the touch, but is only worrysome when touched or knocked. I contacted my GP who arranged blood samples (cholesterol and blood sugar, both of which are fine), and an ultrasound examination (which is also fine), and blood pressure (was diagnosed as being slightly high). Both my doctor and I could find no evidence of lumps and I do not get secretions from my nipple.
Having had a mastectomy 2010 to my right breast, am more aware of any changes to my remaining left breast which has been aching and feels bruised, have checked for lumps but cannot find any, should I be worried and contact my breast cancer nurse ?

About a week ago I got a new bra and the day I started wearing it, I developed some pain in the rib/s right under my left breast (directly where the underwire lies). I thought I might just need to adjust to the new bra so I wore it all week, despite the pain. I finally gave up on it and haven't worn a bra for three days because of the pain. It is painful to touch those areas and also painful to cough, laugh, breath, sneeze, etc.
Is it possible that my daughter could have bruised my left breast while resting her head on me? I just don't want to miss something and possibly have something to worry about.

pain in upper left ribs/just under left breast/parentes</a> was started.
I have similar problems, but the lump and the pain feels like it is just underneath my left breast. I went to the breast clinic, and they did a breast examination, and determined that I do not have breast cancer. For some reason, I don't believe the doctor. I have had this pain for many months now, and would really like to know what it is. My left breast has one spot, on the side under my armpit where it hurts.

Almost my entire left side of the breast, from nipple towards the arm pit and from center top mass of the breast to the underside of the breast is bruised (yellow, green, black, blue and a deep purplish red color) and appears to have blood like pooling or mottling in the skin, particularly towards the nipple. To say the least, discomfort has been an issue, however up until today, the 8th of July, I did not notice any lumps in the area.
I have been having pain for a couple of months now below my left breast. It is on the tip of my rib cage. My rib cage almost feels bruised. It doesn't really hurt unless I touch it or lay down to sleep on my side. I started smoking about 1 year ago and have stopped a few days ago. I smoked about 1 pack a week. Not sure if that has anything to day with it or not. I'm also a waitress. Any suggestions?
Im 32 weeks and all day i have had this sharp pain under my left breast while i breathe , it hurts soo bad to breathe and is very uncomfortable. i dont know if i should call my doxtor or what because it has not got any better and is only getting worse while i lay down and im getting pretty nervous. Has anyone ever had this ?
Thankyou so much chatterally. So much blood work that im not sure how I have any left,all my arms are bruised, but not sure what or if they are testing for a specific thing,.i just got back from doc, I had another ultrasound because they wanted another look at my kidney, but it was the same with a starburst of scarring,not sure how, then they scanned my bladder not sure when I will know anything,pleurisy is exactly what I was thinking so I wil ask do about that.
I'm having chest wall pain and if I don't wear a bra every second, it feels as if my left breast is actually pulling the muscles away from my rib cage. My left breast also feels bruised on top. I don't think it's changed size, and I don't feel a lump. Could the implant be leaking but appear unchanged due to swelling and inflammation?
Is it a post-viral phenomenom? Is it on your left? I also read your posts on the breast cancer site as I have something similar (I think). I also have decided it is a form of stretch mark as I was recently pregnant then had a miscarriage and my breasts seem to have shrunk dramatically so not surprising they look slightly different.
I’m experiencing an intermittent dull pain in the center of my chest that feels like it’s coming from my breast bone as opposed to deeper within my chest. It worsens when I lie on either my left or right side. Pressing on my sternum and ribs worsens the pain only very mildly, nowhere near the extent that I’d expect from cartilage damage, bruised ribs, or pleurisy, the latter two of which I’m familiar with from having had in the past.
However, your soreness in below your left breast. This is unlikely to be related to breast size. Losing weight is an excellent idea. Please begin a regular excercise regimen. Good Luck.
I’m experiencing an intermittent dull pain in the center of my chest that feels like it’s coming from my breast bone as opposed to deeper within my chest. It worsens when I lie on either my left or right side. Pressing on my sternum and ribs worsens the pain only very mildly, not nearly as badly as with the bruised ribs or pleurisy I’ve had in the past. I also have “skipped-heartbeat” palpitations.
Since the pain started it has continually gotten worse moving into the lymph nodes along both sides of my breasts and into my armpit area. Here recently I have noticed bruising like spots on my left breast. At times the lymph nodes in my groin area are painful too; again I have been blown off because I am ‘young’.
The strange thing is that if I put my finger on the lump it will tend to move to the side a bit. Should I be concerned? I am 47. The left breast has not changed at all in shape or appearance. I did see a Dr about 11 months ago. He diagnosed fibrocystic changes. He wanted a mmammogram, but I elected not to do it for 2 reasons. 1) He said my breasts were unusually dense for my age and mammograms do not work well with dense breast tissue.
I have been having pain in my ribs on my left side pretty much directly underneath my breast. I am worried that I might have injured myself about a week ago. It began when I unexpectedly found my beloved pet cat dead. I became extremely upset and rather violent. I spent the next 45 minutes screaming and crying a flinging myself about. This is when the pain started. Although I do not specifically recall falling on my side or anything, I do know that I was breathing very hard.
my left breast is a bit larger and it feels brewsed am I being stuppid. My sister has had breast cancer and my mother has had cirvical cancer should I be concerned?
3 weeks ago I believe I bumped my left breast on my bedroom door handle. A few days later a large lump appeared with a faint yellow sheen on it. Within days a massive bruise covered 2/3rd's of my breast..I take warfarin so am used to this occurring. The bruise has all but gone now, but the lump is still there, still the same size and very prominent.
I have just seen the consultant at my breast clinic. He feels sure that this is accessory breast tissue but I am have got to go back tomorrow to have an ultra sound to be sure. I am a bit down because he basically said that he didnt advise any surgery. He said that surgery in the armpit is very tricky due to all of the nerves twisting in and around the tissues.
So it's mostly on the left side, Under the breast and also right above the left breast it feels bruised. I have a pinching sensation that comes on and off around my elbow. The bruised feeling above my breast tends to be there more often then the feeling below my breast. I'm just wondering are these signs that are possibly leading up to a heart attack ?
