Hi, I am 33 and currently nursing my 21 month old. No history of BC in family. I noticed a quarter-size yellowish area on my right breast about 9 days ago. It looks like an old bruise. However, it has barely faded since i noticed it. I cannot remember my son grabbing me there though it is common for him to do that. I am just scared that this could be IBC especially because my nipple is quite sore on that side too. No overlying skin changes or breast size increase. Shouldn't a bruise be gone by now?

Penguince - bruises have their own lives - particularly since you're nursing a 21 month old. If you're worried, make an appointment with your OB/Gyn. After two weeks, that's certainly reasonable. But do NOT google & try to diagnose cancer over the internet.
