Brown Spots Appear On The Upper Breast (under The Armpit)?
hello, I’m Sitha, I want to ask, at the top of my breast (under the armpit) there are brown spots like moles and sometimes it hurts, is that okay / a sign of cancer? and if so, how to handle it?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Brown spots on the chest can be caused by several medical conditions, such as fungal infections (tinea versicolor, candidiasis, etc.), usually spotting accompanied by other complaints, such as itching, scaling, wetness, etc. Other causes can arise after local inflammation (hyperpigmentation, post-inflammatory), actinic keratosis, dermatitis, lentigo, or malignancy in the skin. To determine the right treatment, a doctor must first check it. The doctor will conduct a direct examination to ask and see the characteristics of the lesions that occur. Additional checks may be carried out to help establish the diagnosis of complaints that are experienced, such as gram examination, examination with lights, and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint experienced. To avoid complaints, you should avoid touching or squeezing the spotting area, avoid direct sun exposure, avoid using narrow clothing, wear loose clothing and absorb sweat, cleanse the body after sweating, and should avoid using personal items such as towels, clothes, etc. along with other people.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
