    So around a week ago, i noticed a load of red veins appearing in a circular shape on my right breast, between my nipple and underarm. It turned into a tiny, pea sized red blob (not lump) but today it has two black dots in it, almost like a vampire bite (black dots are around 1cm apart). So i thought it was a dead milk duct or something but then i noticed the same spot (in the early stages) appearing on the left breast in the same place.

    The rest of my breasts are fine (as in nipple and general circumference), but because i have it on both, im starting to worry....

    There won't be many doctors on the student room other than people training to be doctors!
    I would go to your local GP and get it checked out!
    (I know it's embarrassing)
    Hope you're okay

    I would go to your GP to get it checked out if you're worries

    Just as a thought, could it be your bra/underwear....? If it's in the same place on both sides it could be that something isn't fitting quite right?

    I thought that at the beginning but its in the middle of nowhere on both breasts, nothing interfering with it, the veins are really prominent so i think it might be blood cell orientated.

    Probably noting too serious, but go see your doc so they can find out what it is and treat it. Loads of stuff can happen around the breasts cos of all the glands and ducts and hormones involved.
    Sure it couldn't be anything externat causing it like your bra? No other symptoms other than the marks? Just have a think about any of that so you can mention it when you see the doc.
