I think I have inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). I noticed a red spot on my breast a month ago. The dr said it's probably a derm issue and wanted to take a wait and see approach. Its been a few weeks and the spot is a little bigger. I'm going back to my obgyn Friday to beg for a biopsy. I'm so scared.

I am sorry. Just try to stay calm until you know for sure. I was just diagnosed with breast cancer, and it is scary. I will keep you in my prayers.

@Blwichert are you sore? does your breast feel heavy or swollen? do your lymph nodes feel swollen? Commonly, these are other symptoms that one may experience; however, I would like to encourage you to try to stay calm and not over worry yourself because it will drive you crazy and you won't be able to diagnose yourself. So try not to investigate too much because you need to speak to your doctor; however, do research some so you can be prepared to discuss your concerns with your doctor and, in the case, he/she dismisses your concerns (I have had that happen), do not give in and make sure to express your deep concerns and get all your questions and concerns answered and addressed.
But remember it may be nothing other than a rash, or it may be something benign... but I know it is easier said than done, but do not drive yourself crazy with becoming overly worried. It is normal to be concerned.
