Discovered a lump Oct 6th. Now have rash over area of lump.
I have been diagnosed with fibrocystic breasts for 11 years and am very used to the fibrous tissue and cysts but I found a lump that felt harder and different on October 6th. I got into my pcp the following week and she agreed that it felt different and referred me for a mammo and ultrasound. The first place she sent orders to didn’t have an opening until late Dec. she sent orders to a local hospital and they said because it is breast cancer awareness month they didn’t have availability until Oct 31st. I’ve been feeling heaviness in my left breast as well and Friday it started itching. A ray developed over where the lump is and now it has worsened and is covering half my breast. I’m calling my pcp first thing in the morning but am wondering if a rash always means inflammatory, or if other types of breast cancers have a rash. Or maybe I’m just over worrying. Looking for advice and guidance.
