Hi, I Have Another Question.....my Breast Had Been Itchy Off And On For The Last Few Months, Maybe M

My breasts have been itchy for the last few months, maybe my left one more than my right. My nipple has always been inverted, that's nothing new. It is not hot, red, burning, etc., just the occasional itching. Mammo was clear, obgyn did exam and didn't bring up anything unusual. Does itching always mean IBC? I have myself worked up with fear. Thank you.

Answer

PJ has pointed out some of the other possibilities for itching in the breast; in fact, most of the time itching in the breast is not IBC. You might want to read this post about rashes and IBC to learn about some other possible causes for itching.
