on Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Okay, unfortunately I don't really have any time to post anything pointless -

But I do have time to alert women to a little known type of breast cancer that is not detectable as a lump or on a regular mammogram screening - until after it has flared up. It is aggressive and needs to be attended to quickly. You do not have to have a lump to have breast cancer.

Think you have a bug bite, a little swelling, a little enlargement, or different texture to the breast skin, itching, even a sudden inversion of the nipple? The symptoms are similar to mastitis or a breast infection. If they do not or have not respond to antibiotics within 2 weeks - then by all means see your doctor immediately.

Please visit The IBC (inflammatory breast cancer) Research Foundation website for more details.

There. Now you can't say you didn't know anymore.

Pass the word on ladies.
