I was just wondering I have been getting bruises on my left breast since November..
Is that a sign of breast cancer?
Or should I just stop worrying :)

I have asked my doc about this but he did not bother to take a look :(

Generally speaking, bruising is not an indication of breast cancer, but it is something that should be ruled out. Looking at your age, you may not have had a mammogram before, you may want to ask your Dr. to schedule one, what are some of the side effects of the medications you're taking?

As a rule, any unexplained bruising needs to be checked out by a Dr., if your Dr., is ignoring your concern, find a different Dr. If you have an ob-gyn, you may want to check with that person if the Dr. you're speaking of is your GP.
