Best Answer

If you are referring to abnormal bumps on the breasts, it can be anything from a fatty cyst, to a sign of breast cancer, so it may be important to go for a mammogram. If you are thinking of the bumps on the areola (surrounding the nipple), they are actually raised "sebaceous glands", which provide lubrication during breastfeeding in females.

What is the itchy red bumps that look likes mosquito bites under breast and on breast?

A few types of red bumps on the breasts can indicate a serious problem, and knowing how to differentiate between common bumps and problematic bumps is critical. Eczema is a common skin condition and common on the breasts too so if you have had eczema before and it appears the same and is on both of your breasts, it may be just another outbreak. However, if your regular eczema treatments (if you use any) don't clear it up soon, it is safer to have it checked by the doctor.


Are you breasts developing if you have two very small bumps underneath my sister says these are breast buds?

Your sister is correct. Whether you are a boy or a girl you will develope these "bumps" at the onset of puberty, but the hormonal differences between male and female will cause breasts to develope in the female only. In the case of the male, the bumps will disappear after a time (don't worry, the boys have their problems too!). The bumps might be very sensitive and sore to touch...this is normal.
