That is a highly rare form of cancer: less than 3% of breast cancer.
Also, the pain associated with IBC is not what the OP appears to be describing. In addition there are other symptoms related to IBC that are taken into consideration when diagnosing it. None of which the OP appears to have.
IBC breast cancer mimics a breast infection so closely that it's often misdiagnosed until it's noticed that antibiotics aren't helping. There is pain, warmth, redness, swelling, swollen lymph nodes, fever and possibly discharge from the nipple.... all indicative of a breast infection.
A burning sensation without other symptoms is most likely related to some trauma to the breast tissue.
