I wasn't even that worried about this until this morning. I figured it was just dry skin or something. But then I wondered, "Hmm my boob has been itchy for a while... I wonder if anyone else gets this and what it is." So I googled. As usual, BIG MISTAKE. One of the symptoms of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is itchiness.
The area that's itchy is on the underside of my right breast. The skin there is a little raised and a little pink, and there's a tiny open red dot that looks like a bump I scratched open, but otherwise is soft and isn't flaky or anything. There's nothing else weird about that breast - it's not swollen or warm; no pain, no "orange peel" skin. But I'm freaking out and worrying myself sick - I literally feel like I'm going to vomit or pass out. Someone please help me out!
