Dark red/purple marks/bruises on my breasts?

I'm 14 and I've had them for as long as I can remember but now I'm really starting to get concerned about them. There are about 3 marks between both my breasts, and they are shaped in strips of dark pink or purple (they sometimes change color, I think it depends on the temperature). Sometimes they're more obvious and sometimes they fade to the point where I almost can't see them at all. The marks are rooted at my nipple and shoot outward like rays of light from the sun (awkward analogy, sorry). Between the 3 of them, they average about 3 cm in length and 1 in width. They have no texture and have never once bothered me. I highly doubt this is a medical issue, as I've had them my whole life, but if it is, I would REALLY like to know. I'm more concerned just about their appearance though. I've tried googling this and all I am getting is inflammatory breast cancer, which I am 99.99 percent sure this is not. Please, can someone tell me what this is and how to get rid of it, if that's possible!

Weird. You should ask a professional about it. I don't think it is anything serious, either, but of course you want to know what the heck it is.

Go to your parents and then go to the doctor immediately. Could be extremely unfunny.

You're just too young to try and guess or get suggestions of what it may be. You have to go and see a doctor, sooner the better.

that actually sounds like stretch marks. I've had them on my breasts on and off since around your age, so I doubt it's anything serious. but if you're still worried then you can go to the doctor, they won't judge at all.

Will they go away?

they probably will, but if not then your doctor can recommend some stretch mark cream of some kind that can help make them less noticeable or go away completely.
