There’s an EXTREMELY deadly form of breast cancer that almost NO ONE knows about!!!! It’s called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC), and even cancer helplines haven’t heard of it. It’s extremely difficult to detect – it won’t show up on a mammogram, and you won’t be able to feel it in a Breast Self Exam!
There is no lump to feel. IBC shows up more like a thin sheet of cancer, and it goes undetected all the time. Please click this link for more information from a local news station in Seattle. Make sure that you watch the first video in the list “The Silent Killer: Inflammatory Breast Cancer” for shocking photos of breasts with IBC.
Since this cancer is so often overlooked, most people don’t catch it until they are in Stage 4, which means they will die. Patients with IBC often say that had they known what the symptoms were, they probably would have caught it much sooner, but since they weren’t aware of what they needed to be watching for, they didn’t give much thought to their symptoms.
Please watch this. One of the women interviewed is in her late thirties. There are pictures of a woman who died from IBC – AT SIXTEEN!!!!! It IS affecting young women!!!! Please please check this out! It could save your life!
