Changes of color in the skin
Another inflammatory symptom we should be careful around is a change of color in the skin. It may look like a bruise or become bluish or purple. An accident or another traumatic event can explain these changes of color, but if you have not experienced such a thing, it is a good idea to ask your doctor about this symptom.
He may need to rule out vascular causes as well as certain skin diseases. However, if you feel a painful lump along with color changes, swelling and other symptoms we have listed, breast cancer is a likely cause, and you may need to look for urgent medical assistance.
