I'm 26 years old and been having breast tenderness for about a week ago and thought that it could be a sign of pregnancy. I felt like the wire in my bra was bruising me so i took it off. Then, under my arm pitt (close to my breast) started feeling itchy and more burning sensation on the inside.that lasted for about 3 days.then over the weekend the pain traveled to my right breast and a little to my back with a shocking feeling all day.then i noticed that i started getting red spots almost like hives around the nipple area associated with pain and really also hurts to the touch. Now i noticed that the red spots are growing in quantity. I saw my doctor and she said that it looks like insect bites. But i know it not because its only on my right side in that area and the pain is coming from inside.could this be sign on ibc?

Based upon your description, inflammatory breast cancer (which is generally painless) is very unlikely.

If these red lesions on the skin of your breast persist, then on ecould consider a biopsy.
