Hi All, I am here because I am worried, I have a dark batch of skin on top of my right breast. Up close you can't tell but from a distance in the mirror, it looks sort of darker/maybe like a healed bruise. I am so scared of IBC. I am also 5 weeks pregnant, I don't know if that has anythign to do with it. please help me!

You just had an Mammo and or ultrasound and a biopsy correct? I think if there was anything there to worry about it would have shown at that time. What did the biopsy say?

Pregnancy can cause weird things to go on with the breasts so try not to worry every time it feels weird and they will or hurts because OMG they will.

Thanks for replying Sherbear this is actually on my other breast. It just appeared. (I did have an ultrasound on this breast too), because I had a bilateral ultrasound. I am worried because when I was reading all the stuff about my other breast... i learned that a bruise or darkening patch could be a symptom of IBC, here I go with this whirlwind!
