When pregnant with my first child in 2001, I noticed a little blue bump slightly under the skin, between my breast area, more over the diaphram I believe. I was in the tub with a huge belly. When I got out I sterilized the area with alcohol and sterilized the pin, and dug it out. It was a tiny black hard thing, shaped kind of like a roundish, but not a ball, with maybe tiny tiny bumps on it. I broke it open with the pin, It was very tiny like the size of this letter " a ". Inside the hard exterior was nothing. I shrugged it off grossed out & never looked back. Since then, I did get another one after the pregnancy was over, and could not retrieve it. Then between 2001 and NOW, I have had 3 more that I removed on my own, this time in my breast. I thought it was a hormone change or something, but now I am concerned. My friend is older than me and just had a mammogram and ultrasound, then a biopsy of some fibroid tumors. I have been thinking about my situation a lot worried What are they?

It is very hard to answer your question without seeing the blue bumps on your breast area. The lumps may not originate from the breast glandular tissue (like your friend’s fibroma) but from the skin itself. You shouldn't remove them by yourself but you can ask medical help at your GP or family doctor's office and consult a dermatologist, if necessary.
