Brief Answer:
Swollen breast

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking...

The symptoms that you had prescribed before seems like you have mastitis.

Mastitis is a condition where tissue in the breast and nipples become inflamed. The nipples become red, swollen and painful to touch.

But due to your breast cancer history, I'd suggest you at first breast ultrasound and then further examination, if needed depending on ultrasound results.

Please feel free to ask further questions

Regards
