NO, NO, HECK NO!: Inflammatory carcinoma of the breast is an aggressive malignancy that needs prompt attention. It is treated with chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation plus or minus endocrine therapy and herceptin (trastuzumab). There is no herbal substitute. Whoever tells you that is ignorant, criminal, or both.
