Red Tender Spot on Left Breast

I'm still breastfeeding my 16month old son and now just the past couple of Days my left breast is really tender and has a red spot on it but no lumps or anything. What can it be? I've never had this kind of pain before. I don't have any other symptoms either. My son doesn't eat as much as before but it doesn't seem like a clogged duct because I've had that before so I don't know. Any advice is appreciated =) Thanks.

  • It could be a cyst, that sounds like what I told my doctor when I had one, but it's definitely something your doctor needs to look at. Hugs!

  • Thanks Ladies,I'm gonna wait till after I have my Period and if its still bothering me I'll go to the Doc. I know sometimes there can be breast tenderness right before your period so I'm hoping thats all it is.

  • Definitely go to the doctor to get an exam. Anything concerning your breasts and spots is something that needs immediate attention.
