What is Inflammatory Breast Cancer?
It's a different type of breast cancer that comprises less than 4 percent of all breast cancer cases. It's called inflammatory breast cancer or IBC and it's aggressive , but many doctor don't think to look for it. It's estimated that about 1%-2% of newly diagnosed invasive breast cancers in the United States are inflammatory breast cancers. The median age range of IBC patients is between 45 and 55 years old, but may be either younger or older. The 5-year median survival rate is approximately 40%, mainly due to delays in diagnosis, the lack of expertise in treating IBC and its resistance to treatment with standard chemotherapy drugs.
