Hi There I've been worrying myself sick over the past week. Last weekend I was doing my hair when I came out the shower and I noticed I had this dimple under my right breast. I had also had a sort of crusty discharge intermittently throughout the last couple of weeks. I didn't panic but decided I should get it checked ASAP so went to GP on Monday. He felt my breast and said there were a couple of nodules he wasn't completely happy with so has put an urgent referral into the one stop breast clinic. I think the reality of it hit me at that point and I've pretty much been a wreck since then. However there were no changes in my breast until Sat when I woke up with a rash around my armpit. I can only describe it like sunburn. It felt hot like sunburn, was bright red and was slightly raised. It has left my whole armpit feeling tender but the colour has changed to look more like bruising around my armpit but it still has a burning sensation. Does anyone know if these are symptoms of IBC and if not what else could be causing these symptoms? I have never had breast problems before.

Hi There Last week I found a dimple under my right breast when my arm is raised. I have had a sort of crusty discharge coming from that nipple for a few weeks now but didn't really think anything of it. I went to the GP yesterday and he said he felt a couple of nodules he wasn't completely happy with. He did also say nodules can be completely normal but he has referred me to the one stop clinic to be sure. I am trying to stay rational and keep telling myself that 4 out of 5 times it is not cancer but the doubts keep coming into my head nd I feel sick to my stomache. Apparently it'll be 2-3 weeks before my appointment. Has anyone else had symptoms similar to these?
