Jen - You should see your doctor. It may be mastisis again, but it could be something else, and it's important to get this checked out as soon as possible. I encourage you to read our reference information on IBC to be informed, but to also not panic. http://www.empowher.com/condition/inflammatory-breast-cancer And, so you also have this information, here's the link to our reference page on mastitis: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/mastitis

Will you let us know what you learn? Good luck! Pat

IBC is not very common, but what is more common are infections of the breast. Infections are identified only by seeing your doctor, and symptoms include warm-to-the-touch and pain/tenderness and swelling.

Please call your doctor right away, so you can be properly diagnosed and treated. Infections are usually very easy to treat with antibiotics, and the sooner you are treated, the faster the recovery.

Please let us know what your doctor says!
