What is meant by 'puckering and/or dimpling' of the skin? I have just done a breast self-exam and when I sit down, put my
arms above my head and stretch my arms upward plus when I lean forward, I've noticed what I believe to be puckering and
dimpling of my skin on both breasts stretching from just above the nipple to right at the top of the breast tissue. This is
much more noticeable on my left breast. But it is more noticeable on my right breast when I do the same thing standing up.
I've had this for nearly four years since I first started breastfeeding my eldest son, and I have been breastfeeding for a
total of almost 12 months since my second son was born. This puckering and dimpling looks like scarring and also looks like
loose skin being pulled upwards. In fact it's even more noticeable when I physically pull the skin upward and it's during
that time when the skin wrinkles like an elderly person's skin. Is this caused by just sagging of my breast tissue and skin
either due to my age (I'll be 30 in September), the breast skin being stretched due to swelling of both breasts caused by the
filling of breast milk, because I've gained and lost a few pounds in weight, or is it something more sinister like breast
cancer. Now, although I haven't found any unusual breast lumps, I'm worried sick because I only recently read that puckering
and dimpling of the breast skin is a clear sign of breast cancer. Do I have any reason to worry?
