Bruises On Breasts?
pat 2 small bruises on my left breast which are dark in color but no lump/pain. At first I thought it was a knock or a bra that didn’t fit but the bruise didn’t go away, what do you think?
Hello, thanks for your question
Bruises generally cause bluish patches on the skin as a sign of ruptured small blood vessels. It is normal for bruising to follow a trauma or impact. However, if bruising occurs for no apparent reason, it should be noted. Several serious illnesses can underlie the formation of bruising. Here are some of them:
hemophilia, either type A or B, due to a lack of one of the blood clotting factors
thrombocytopenia, which is a decrease in the level of platelets below normal
leukemia, is a blood cancer that causes the production of white blood cells to increase but suppresses the production of other blood cells
Idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura (ITP), thrombocytopenia of unknown cause, is thought to be due to autoimmune
If you want to determine the cause, you should immediately consult a doctor. The doctor will first evaluate the skin lesion that you are complaining about, whether it is a bruise or other skin lesion. Furthermore, if necessary, the doctor will examine your blood sample. Once the cause is determined, then the treatment is determined.
While waiting for a doctor's examination, it is recommended that you:
use the right size bra
avoid impact on the body, including the breast
Avoid excessive sexual activity in the breast area
I hope this information is useful
