Go to the doctor.  Ask about breast cancer specifically.  It probably is not cancer but sometimes, they dont think of it as the type that has skin signs is rare.

I just wanted to say that this is not true, about the symptpms, except yhat itching can be involved. but it's never about one or two brown spots like those you describe, and the picture looks very different.

It also does not affect teenagers  any more than other breast cancer, (meaning very, very rarely) and is not common among  very young people.

It is true though that generally, people with IBC are diagnosed a about ten years earlier in age, so if the average age may be 55 in the general bc population, with IBC is may be 45.
