    Hi,

    2 days ago a circle of breast area on one of my breasts, to the side, started itching like crazy.
    Since then the itching has not gone away and the area is continuously hot.
    Also, it is slightly raised from the rest of my breast.

    I've never heard of breast cancer itching? So I don't believe it is that. But could anyone give any thoughts?
    I've never had this sensation before.


    I should note that I am a "high risk" apparently: - my grandpa had breast cancer, I am particularly large breasted and I run and partake in activities which can stretch my breast tissue easily.

    If it's something unusual and it's worrying you, get it checked out. For peace of mind if nothing else.
