Has anyone heard that prominent veins on breast can indicate breast cancer?
I was diagnosed in Feburary with IDC and lump on right side of breast was almost 4 centimeters by March (during all the waiting for doctors appointments and tests it grew about a centimeter)
I went through 4 rounds of A/C chemo and then 4 Taxol every 2 weeks which I started in April prior to having surgery
Then I started having pains and feeling lumps on left breast in June so doctor ordered another Breast MRI and PET scan but both were negative. (chemo must have really worked) . I also had begun eating much more healthy and alkalizing foods.
I am just now schedule for surgery this week as it's been over a month since last chemo..
Now I am seeing a blue vein on left breast going stright to the nipple. Never noticed it until recently. And if I wear tight clothes or bra I have pain. on left side now. In June, an ultrasound showed suspicious masses on left as well I had a biopsy on one of the lumps on left side and it was benign, so still not sure about having masectomy on left side. as now I have no pain but still seems to be a lot of lumps.
Also I've heard pregnancy can cause veins to show but that's not the case here..

A second opnion doctor told me pain could be from the biopsy. But is that true a month later?
Right breast had the diagnosed breast cancer , nipple was very senstive before chemo started and even now seems much larger that left. but my oncologist said it was fine , didn't look like anything had spread to nipple even when I tried to explain changes I saw prior to chemo then chemo settled it down.
Now I'm just trying to decide to get masectomy on left breast as well. Doctors did not recommend it specifically.. just the right.
