A woman claims wearing tight underwire bra ‘ s led her to develop a cyst, which, when removed, left a big “hole” in her chest.

Lynne McConnell, who lives in Brighton, England, told SWNS she first bought underwire bra in 2003, and was provided for them by clerks in a store. Although return them to the store “numerous” times over the years to complain that the bra was too tight, the shop of the workers, allegedly, insisted they were fine.

“The staff said that is how they should fit,” recalled McConnell, 51, to the news outlet.

But in June 2018, McConnell developed a hard lump in the middle of her chest, that, after seeking medical help, she would learn, was a cyst that had to be cut out.

Although the cyst was only the size of a pea on the first, McConnell said that it grew, causing her pain and ultimately leads to the removal by a surgeon in Brighton Park Centre for breast care. She was left with an almost 2-inch wide open wound which has three months to heal. She did not elaborate on the reason why she was unable to receive stitches.

McConnell said the surgeon that the growth told her the underwire bra’s she was wearing “press a smooth, blocked [it], and the cause of the cyst to develop,” SWNS reported.

“It was very uncomfortable to wear a bra, and the lump was growing quickly. By the time I went to the breast clinic, it was really painful. I went to 3 hours, and left within two hours. The surgeon cuts it there and then,” she said.

“It was just too tight. I’ve always said that it is too tight but they just told me that is how it should fit. It was uncomfortable, but I listened to them,” McConnell added. “The staff insisted that how tight they should be.”

Adil Sheraz, a dermatologist and a spokesman for the British Skin Foundation, told SWNS tight clothing “are known to cause cysts,” which is “sack-like bag of membranous tissue that contains fluid, air or other substances” that grow under the skin, per healthline.

“They are often defined on the basis of their location, for example, pilar cysts often form on the scalp,” he told the outlet.

Sheraz added: “ovarian Cysts may be inherited or acquired. Hereditary disorders, such as syndrome of Gardner, may result in multiple cysts. Cysts form when cells begin to multiply inside in place of a barn on the surface. Why some people form cysts is not fully known. However, they can often be caused by a blockage at the site of a hair follicle opening, as a result of a blocked pores or even damage to the skin.”

“Occlusion of the pores which may occur from pressure or tight clothing may lead to the formation of cysts,” he concluded.

McConnell said that the cyst was not only painful, but affect her self-confidence also.

“There is something clearly wrong and all I want is for people to learn from what has happened. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I have. It is really affecting my self-esteem for a long time,” she said. “I could not wear a bra for weeks and I try to take pride in how I look. It was not fun.”
