Inflammatory breast cancer
Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare, fast-growing type of breast cancer. With this type of cancer, the cancer cells often do not form lumps in the breast. Instead, the cancer cells block the lymph fluid in the breast tissue. This can make the breast look swollen and red and feel warm, as if it were infected. The swelling may cause lots of tiny dimples in the skin (orange peel appearance).
