    Our friend noticed 2 areas on her breast which resemble ringworm, she went to the doctor and she wouldn't give her an antibiotic just scheduled her for a mamogram, and then biopsy. She has a history of her twin sister dying from IBC back 5 to 6 years ago. Our friend is around mid sixties. and in relatively good health, she is still a full time employee. Needlessly to say she is scared there is no swelling and no other symptoms to date. Just this ringworm looking spot which now has 3 spots developed. Have you ever heard of this kind of presentation. I have seached for pictures of what IBC in the early stages looks like but haven't found any. Thank you for your time. Tomorrow she goes for her mamogram, and Wednesday to the surgeon. We pray that this is either a mistake or that it is being caught early enough to make a difference.

    I dont have an answer but I am a 29 year old who just had a biopsy yesterday due to a lump in my right breast.... Dont know of the results yet but I have had it for a year and just recently developed what the primary care phy. called a ringworm on the same breast. She knows nothing of the lump or the biopsy i was about to have as i see a diff. doc for that. She gave me a perscription for an anti fungal. Just makes me wonder if they are related... What were here results...

      Hi, I am 43 years old and over the past 3 to 6 months I've had ringworms on both breast, usually an antifungal creme and diaper rash creme clear it up, just wondering what were your results...my mom has had breast cancer and just wanted to get some advice.
