My right breast is red and discolored and my armpit is and breast are very painful, my mam came back normal fibroglandular, my primary has me on antibiotics for now but it feels so heavy and painful and the nipple is white in the center am I in line for IBC?
Inflammatory breast cancer is very rare and can mimic mastitis or an infection of the breast. If the redness fails to improve with antibiotics, a biopsy may be necessary.
