Our daughter in law, age 45, died in October this year from this deadly disease. She was diagnosed four years ago, and was given six months to live. As soon as the diagnosis was made, the cancer had already invaded her liver. From there it went to her brain, then to her spine, and her liver worsened and worsened. She fought a good fight, but that kind of cancer is deadly. Many, many doctors do not know what it is when they see it. It is very aggressive, spreads like wildfire. It presents itself as a sore on the breast, does not present as a lump. Get informed, ladies, and do not be taken by surprise like our loved one, who was, by the way, a registered nurse.
For those who want to do research, just Google 'inflammatory breast cancer'........and get yourself informed.
