hello. First and foremost, I am 31 years old and have 3 kids. I am still breastfeeding my 2 year old. Yesterday I noticed an indention type area on my breast. It is on my right breast under the armpit near the armpit fat. I do not feel a lump or have any other signs. My husband can’t see it. It also disappears when I lift my arm but is there when my arm is down. It looks like I may have a slight one on my left side but unsure. My right breast is larger and I do have some underarm fat. More than I would like. Any input or advice. I’m so worried. I do have an appt at end of month.

    Try not to worry about it! Just mention it at your next appointment. Most likely it's nothing, especially if you have a similar spot on the other side.

    Thank you all. I really do appreciate it. Is it possible that it is something even if I can only see it when my arms are down? Everything I see says you see it more when arms are raised. I can’t see it while raised, only when my arms are down. When I tighten my muscles, with arms down, it does become more clear but on my other side, it looks like I have some small indents. But I am unsure and my eyes may be messing with me now. The right Breast is close to a cup size bigger than my left. It hangs more than the left as well. I also have my under arm fat in that arm. I’m just so scared and it’s beginning to consume my thoughts.

    There's nothing to be consumed with worry about yet. If it's taking over your life please reach out to your doctor earlier.

    How have you been doing? Have you had your appointment yet? I’m in a similar boat- it’s all so scary.
