#MyLoveBeatsCancer Campaign ~ share the videos, donate and help us educate!
Our mission is to change the perceived notion that all breast cancers begin with a lump. We educate the general public, doctors, everyone that you don't need to have a lump to have breast cancer. Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is the most aggressive breast cancer and is often misdiagnosed as an infection. This must STOP!
Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is THE MOST aggressive type of breast cancer in which the cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast. This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed”, sometimes overnight.
Inflammatory breast cancer is often misdiagnosed. The best known symptoms of IBC include the following:
If one or more of these symptoms continue for more than a week, talk to a physician immediately, and find an expert with experience in treating this particular type of breast cancer. Many women have to demand that their physicians “rule out” IBC, and (therefore) become their own best advocate, as more education is needed in the medical community regarding this form of breast cancer.
IBC is treated differently, because it is different.
