Inflammatory Breast Cancer: New type of fatal cancer often misdiagnosed
February 14, 2008 11:16am CST
A friend told me that this not well known even to some doctors. The symptoms include inflammation and/or discoloration. It's often misdiagnosed as a mere infection, so doctors either give anti-biotics or tell patients to wait 6 months for it to go away. Since there ar no lumps, it's not detectable through self-examination nor mammograms. It can only be detected through biopsy or MRI. If left untreated, the patient will die. Has anyone heard of this before?
