Breast Cellulitis

My mother was diagnosed with breast cellulitis. Does this mean she could have breast cancer? She has had silicone implants in her for 25 years may this be the cause?

Thanks for your reply. She's going back to the Dr. today, for an MRI.

Breast cellulitis is a skin infection and would have no real connection to breast cancer. You may be thinking of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Breast cellulitis is most often treated with a course of antibiotics. Regards ....
