small white spot on breast

I noticed a faint, small white spot/area on my left breast. It is, as I say, very faint and small and there is no lump or thickening or anything there when I felt the area. But I read something once about calcifications in the breast. This small spot on my skin wouldn't be breast calcifications would it? I seem to have got myself wound up about this.

Breast calcifications are tiny spots of calcium that show up on mammograms, so it is highly unlikely that this spot is a breast calcification.

If this change in your breast is still present, then you should have your doctor take a look at it.
