Itchy, dry patch of skin on breast...

I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with this problem before. For a few months, I've been paranoid about this small patch of dry skin on my breast, right above my nipple. It's a bit smaller than dime size and doesn't look red or inflammed, but rather like a patch of dry skin...but it makes my nipple and breast itch constantly. I was reading about Inflammatory Breast Cancer and how one of the symptoms is an itchy breast and I completely flipped out. Can anyone tell me if this is something serious like IBC or is it just something as common as a skin disorder? If anyone could ease my mind, I'd really appreciate it.

Re: Itchy, dry patch of skin on breast...

amberlea,
I would just suggest going to see either a dermatologist or your OBGY-N just to be sure. Wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry. Breast cancer is nothing to sit on your hands and wait it out about. If you are concerned go get it checked out and possibly have your mind put at ease. Especially since the particular breast cancer you mentioned is fairly new. Don't wait. The sooner, the better. I don't know enough about that particular cancer to be able to ease your mind. But, if it were me, I would get it checked out before you could say, hmmm.

Also, you may want to look at the posts on the breast cancer portion of this site. I think there is one. Just check under Health Issues. There should be either a Breast Cancer forum or just a Cancer forum.
Take care and keep in touch.
