IBC—Inflammatory Breast Cancer
[Please do consider sharing this]
My mother had IBC so this is a little bit personal for me. She was a fairly young women, in her 40’s which is typical of IBC patients.
What is IBC?
IBC is an extrememly aggressive form of breast cancer. It is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or inflamed. Sometimes it even appears overnight. At diagnoses IBC is always either stage III or stage IV cancer.
• IBC tends to be diagnosed in younger women than other forms of breast cancer.
• IBC is rarely easily diagnosed and it is very difficult to detect on a mammogram
• The median age of IBC patients is between 45-55 years old
• IBC can occur in men
• IBC is not detected by locating a “lump” in the breast
Warning signs of IBC and what to be aware of:
IBD does not occur as a breast lump and may appear to be something other than cancer.
Some IBC symptoms :
A breast that appears discolored
A dimpled or ridged skin texture or a texture similar to orange peel.
The orange peel texture of the skin is a hallmark of IBC although not one of the only signs
The breast may feel warm or itchy
The breast gets larger, changes shape, or becomes more tender (sometimes this happens overnight).
Thickened breast tissue.
Flattening, swelling, pulling in or a crust like appearance of the nipple (any nipple changes should be suspect)
Itching or rash on the breast
Shooting or stabbing pain
Enlarged lymph nodes under the arm, above/below the collarbone.
Also a hardened area in the breast that feels similar to pencil lead.
Change in color of the skin around the nipple.
If you or someone you love has one or more of these symptoms for more than a week, talk to a physician immediately. If you are concerned you should push to see an expert. My mother talked to her physician about her itchy painful breast and he initially diagnosed it as tendon problems and gave her an itch relief cream for a “rash”. If you have a rash on your breast or sudden changes to your breast please do take it seriously. The best hope for a successful cure is to get treatment as soon as possible.
Please do consider passing on this information, you may help save a life.
