Inflammatory breast cancer
What are the signs of inflammatory breast cancer?
Signs of inflammatory breast cancer can develop quickly and may include:
- the breast looks red or inflamed or develops a rash – it often looks as if it’s infected or bruised
- the breast becomes swollen and enlarged and may feel heavy or uncomfortable
- the breast feels warm and tender
- skin on the breast can appear dimpled or pitted, like an orange peel.
Some people may also have a lump in their breast or armpit, pain in the breast or nipple, discharge from the nipple or a nipple that turns inwards (inverted nipple).
