Lumps And Skin Discoloration In The Breast Accompanied By Itching?

Hello Ika! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lumps in the breast can indeed cause concern. However, lumps are not always dangerous. It is possible that bumps and discoloration of the skin did occur due to bruising. Bruising is a condition of accumulation of blood cells under the skin due to impact or pressure on the skin. Bruises usually only last a few days. The color will change from purplish to green and then turn yellow. Itching is not a specific symptom. Regular bruising, benign tumors, to malignant tumors (cancer) can cause itching even though not all patients experience it. If the bumps and discoloration that you feel have persisted long enough, you should immediately see a doctor. You can see a general practitioner or surgeon. The doctor will ask for your symptoms in more detail and other accompanying symptoms. The doctor will also examine your breasts directly and touch the lump to see if the lump formed is dangerous or not. The doctor will explain the possible causes and what actions need to be taken next. Meanwhile, avoid holding or pressing excessive lumps.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
