Mastitis or IBC?

Hi, I had a lumpectomy two years ago for DCIS. I went through radiation. All went well. I am currently taking tamoxifen.I had a  diagnostic  digital mammogram on Friday which the radiologist reveiwed and said that everything looked good and no changes from the last mammogram which was taken 7 mos ago. The day after the mammogram my DCIS/lumpectomy breast became red, sore and inflamed.  Could a mammogram cause this to happen? Could this be IBC or mastitis?  I will call my breast surgeon tomorrow but in the meantime I am frantic here as to what this could be. I am 52 years old and in good health.  Thank you.
