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. http://www.ibcresearch.org/




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

Pass the word on ladies.
