Description

Inflammatory breast cancer is not a common type of breast cancer. Overall, it accounts for about 2% to 5% of all cases of breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer develops and progresses rapidly, which accounts for a poor prognosis. The median survival for patients with inflammatory breast cancer is 15 months, even with treatment. It presents with signs and symptoms of inflammation, and is often mistaken for cellulitis. Physical exam may reveal a warm, indurated and erythematous breast, without an underlying mass, but axillary adenopathy is common. Also, it may present as a reddened breast, without systemic features of inflammation. Prompt biopsy followed by treatment by an interprofessional team is highly recommended. Unlike other breast cancers, initial treatment of inflammatory breast cancer is chemotherapy, followed by surgery and radiation.
