I noticed a red area at edge of areola of my left breast at 3"0 clock position about a size of 1 cm and palpable lump below. It was 14 th april. My GP put me on antibiotics, got an ultrasound , it said it looks like an abscess or haematoma but underlying neoplasm could not entirely excluded.

Radiologist advised repeat USG after 1 month, and by this time suggest needle aspiration. Took antibiotics for 7 days, redness gone ,size of lump become half, some blood oozes out from the skin overlying lump, feel better.

But from the past 4/ 5 days I am having pain whole of my breast , left arm, the lump feels same ,breast looks bruised , went to GP asked for a referral to breast specialist, got denied and put me on same antibiotics again . he had no idea what I am going through and has no plan.

I am 49, had hysterectomy 4yrs back .so ladies do u think my symptoms look like I IBC?

Sorry that you are going through this, and we understand how anxiety-provoking such symptoms can be. We really cannot make diagnoses here on the boards. We really think that the best thing is for you to make another attempt, maybe through a gynecologist, to get to a breast surgeon who could examine this.

We're thinking of you!
