Inflammatory Breast Cancer
I am 5 months pregnant and both breasts are red and very warm.  They have been red for about 4 weeks but last week they became very warm and got the orange peel appearance.  The doctor put me on a antibiotic for 1 week and they seemed to get a little better but now seem to be regressing back.  Can inflammatory breast cancer strike both breast?  What should I ask the doctor for next?

What Are the Symptoms of Inflammatory Breast Cancer?
Unlike the more common form of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer does not generally present as a lump. The disease grows as nests or sheets that clog the lymph system under the skin. Often the symptoms are attributed to other diseases and thus the diagnosis may take a long time to occur.

Symptoms include:

Pain in the breast. Often inflammatory breast cancer is mistaken as a breast infection and treated with antibiotics. If response to antibiotics doesn't occur after a week, request a breast biopsy or referral to a breast specialist.
