Right now I'm having a horrible bout of anxiety due to a fear of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I have had a red spot on the very top of my breast (near the chest wall) for going on 2 weeks. It doesn't itch, isn't raised, hasn't changed in size. I've been to the gyn who said she's only seen 2 cases of this type of cancer in her 20 years (it's rare), but that my breasts feel normal, and those with IBC feel "different.
She said she's not concerned, but since I am, she is sending me for a second opinion with the general surgeon. The same guy that took my gallbladder out (how reassuring)
Anyways, the more I Google, the more I realize I have more symptoms.
Granted, some of them I've had for a long time (IBC is very aggressive), but now it worries me. My question is, do any of you ever have itchy nipple (one side more so than the other), or random breast pain when it's not period time? My breast that I'm worried about does randomly itch, especially the nipple area, and I get tenderness and random pains even when it's not period time.
Any feedback would be so much appreciated!!!
