cancer ? a red/bruise looking lump?

I have a red/bruise looking lump on the side of my right breast. It's about the size of a quarter and I was wondering if it might have anything to do with cancer. It's been there for about two days and it hasn't changed at all.

Hi lori859 and welcome to ehealth: If you have a lump on your breast that is growing and wasn't there before, then have it checked out...The problem being, nobody knows what is going on below the surface of your skin...Have you had a mammogram lately?...Just stay on top of this and don't be afraid to go to the doctor...Take care...

Any time you have any changes in your breast, lymph nodes under arm or above collarbone, you should mention it to your doctor and rule out anything serious (like IBC, which is inflammatory breast cancer).
