Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC)

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) occurs when cancer cells block the lymphatic vessels in the skin covering the breast making the breast red and swollen. IBC can spread to other parts of the body.

Breast cancer screenings, mammograms and tissue biopsies are performed to diagnose inflammatory breast cancer.

Treatment for inflammatory breast cancer usually consists of chemotherapy, surgery or radiation therapy.
