I have found a large bruise under my right breast. There is history of breast cancer in my family. I am only 23 but I am still worried. This is not my first bruise ( they went away) but this is the largest and they have been happening frequently. Could it also be because I wear a lot of sports bras?

You should see a doctor if you are bruising easily. With a history of breast cancer in your family remember to do self breast exams 1 week after your period. Be sure to palpate the tissue under your arm pits and breast. I don't know if the bruising would be related to cancer. Go to your gyn and voice your concerns.

I've never heard of bruising being related to breast cancer, but I know it can mean other things. I'd get it checked out.

bruise
In response to the bruising, I�ve been using this stuff on my kids for a while that�s been working great. They both play soccer so they get cuts and bruises on their legs often, not to mention they�re just generally rough when they play. I was reffered to this stuff called bruiseMD by another mother at school. The ingredients are all natural and it works quickly so it�s a great bruise remedy. Hope that helps!
