Breast Skin Dimpling

Breast skin dimpling refers to the appearance of small indentations or puckering on the skin of the breast, which can be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as breast cancer. The dimpling may be caused by the pulling of the ligaments that support the breast tissue, which can occur when there is a mass or growth in the breast that is pulling on the tissue. Other causes of breast skin dimpling include infection, trauma, or inflammation.

If you notice any changes in the appearance of your breasts, such as dimpling, it is important to see a healthcare professional for a thorough evaluation. Your healthcare professional may perform a physical exam and imaging tests, such as a mammogram or ultrasound, to determine the cause of the dimpling and to rule out breast cancer or other serious medical conditions. Early detection and treatment of breast cancer can improve outcomes and increase the chances of a successful recovery.
