    Oh darlin'.... first thing to do is relax a bit. Second, the other women are correct, talk to your Mom so she can get an appointment for you. The facts are IBC is very rare! There are a ba-zillion other things this could be that are NOT cancer. Stay off the computer and quit trying to diagnose yourself. It is terrifying and will only upset you for no good reason. The chance of this actually being breast cancer are a very small risk. BUT.... that is NOT to say don't have this checked. Whenever anything with your body is different, (my rule of thumb is 2 weeks) have it checked out. Take care, Sharon

    Shaye, this may very well be normal things, like dry skin, or an allergy to a material or detergent. During your growing years, you may have some swelling and tenderness. I had little bumps on my nipples until I was in my 20's or older. I think it is hormonal. Occasionally one might have a small amount of white waxy matter, and that is normal too. Have your mother take you to your doctor , and get peace of mind about this.

    Don't prayer. Go find out what it is. Then be thankful you found it or that's its nothing to worry about. Knowledge is power sweet.

    If you haven't done so please talk with your mother. You should be seen by a doctor to see what it may or may not be.

    Please talk to your mom or another adult that you trust and make a doctors appointment . You cannot diagnose everything over the internet. Good luck
