Question. I am a 22-year-old woman and I have a problem which I cannot discuss with anyone. My breasts have these dark marks on them which look like bruises. I got them when I first developed breasts, but they are still there. Is there any cause for worry? I suspect that I may have breast cancer. I haven't gotten myself tested and I don't want any doctor to see my breasts.
Answer. To relieve you of your anxiety, if you do not wish to see a male doctor, visit a female doctor. Since you have the spots since childhood, it does not seem to be a serious matter. But a medical opinion should be taken to be certain.
