Signs that you’re dealing with fungating breast cancer tend to be very obvious, says Kecia Gaither, M.D., an OB/GYN and maternal fetal medicine specialist at NYC Health and Hospitals/Lincoln in New York City. She says the symptoms can include:

  • Foul odor
  • Infected skin surrounding the lesion, including redness and inflammation
  • Itchiness

  • Spots of necrosis (where tissue has died), which appear as dark areas on the breast
  • Thickening skin around the tumor site
  • Pain at the tumor site
