Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Inflammatory breast cancer

Unlike other breast cancers, inflammatory breast cancer may not cause a lump in the breast. Instead, it may cause the breast to be swollen, red, and warm. The skin of the breast may look thick and pitted, like an orange peel. The nipple may become inverted, or it may sink inward. Talk to your doctor if you notice changes in the way your breast looks or feels.
