Please post pictures of inflammatory breast cancer in early stages?

Swelling, redness

Carpal_tunnel_syndrome
You can Google photos (images) for inflammatory breast cancer. There is not 1 picture. This is a hard diagnosis to make because there is not a mass. There is often redness, swelling, orange peel like changes. It is often confused with an infection. If you think anything is abnormal, see your doctor

What is Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC)?

Aggressive

Breast_cancer
IBC is an aggressive form of breast cancer. It typically occurs in younger women, and often will present as a "pimple" or other infection, that does not respond to antibiotics. It can spread rapidly to the lymph nodes and other areas of the body, and usually is treated with chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. ANY CHANGE in your breast needs to be reported to your physician, not just a lump.

Dr. Travis Kidner answered:

What exactly is inflammatory breast cancer?

Type of cancer

Breast_cancer
Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare and very aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast. This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed.” Inflammatory breast cancer accounts for 1 to 5 percent of all breast cancers diagnosed in the United States.

Ibc inflammatory breast cancer, what is this?

Aggressive

Breast_abscess
It is an aggressive form of breast cancer that presents with pain, swelling and redness of the breast instead of the usual painless mass. Requires intensive treatment with preoperative chemo followed by surgery and radiation. I usually scan patients with this to see if the cancer has already spread. If this is about you, you need to start therapy PRONTO. Don't despair, just get it going.

What are signs of inflammatory breast cancer?

Looks like infection

Open-uri20130317-27097-1ln2prv
IBC occurs suddenly with breast pain, redness, or swelling or a rash. Mammograms are often negative because the tumor cells grow in a sheet and don't form a lump. It is very fast-growing and spreads quickly. Immediate chemotherapy is needed. It looks like an infection, so doctors often try antibiotics first, delaying diagnosis. See a medical oncologist immediately if you have these symptoms.

Dr. Hung Khong answered:

Can inflammatory breast cancer get worse and better?

Depends on stage

Breast_carcinoma
It is an aggressive disease. There is no stages 1 or 2. It is either stage 3 or 4 at diagnosis. For stage 3, chemotherapy is usually given first, follwed by surgery, then radiation therapy. Hormonal therapy if ER+. Yes, patients may be cured with proper treatment, but many do have recurrence. For stage 4, patients may do well on chemo initially but in all the cancer will progress eventually.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Can you see inflammatory breast cancer on ultrasound?

Not always

Open-uri20130503-11766-w9yhca
Inflammatory breast cancer is characterized by the spread of cancer to the (lymphatics of the) skin, giving it the appearance of a skin infection. An underlying breast lumpMAYbe present, which would be seen by mammogram +/-ultrasound; however, it can often grow like sheets of tumor cells in the breast without any lump, which could be missed on ultrasound. If you have concerns, see a breast surgeon
