Breast Cancer Treatment and Pregnancy - Inflammatory Breast Cancer

cancer, cancer has spread to the skin of the breast and the breast looks red and swollen and feels warm. The
redness and warmth occur because the cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the skin. The skin of the breast
may also show the dimpled appearance called peau
