I would like to know if anyone as young as I am has Inflammatory breast cancer also. I am 32, but was diagnosed when I was 31.

Sorry to learn you were diagnosed with this type so young. I was 73 when I was diagnosed but have met two other ladies that are younger. Hope all is going well.

Im reading your story and Im confused. I was told I had Imflammatory Breast Cancer, but my breast never had a rash. My tumor grew from a pea size tumor to 13mm in days. It was like fire taking off. Did this happen to you as well as the rash?

Hi Kati,

I too am a Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. Since my treatments I know have diabetes, thyroid disease, liver problems, cyst of my ovarie, and the newest problem displas on the cuff of my vagina. I go for laser surgery April 4th. I go see a liver specialist Monday. I read that chemo and radiation may push other diseases out. I'd say the book was right. How are you doing now?

Hi Becky,

I cant believe I found someone with Imflammatory Breast Cancer. I am 45 and was diagnoised at 44. I am worried for my daughter getting breast cancer young. My oncologist wants her to start a preventative breat cancer treatment at the age of 28 or once shes done mothering. How are you feeling? Are you married? Do you have any children?

This is my frist message. so please excuse the spelling and grammar
I have been researching the cause of cancer for 12 years. I believe that I have found out the main cause of about 50-60 percent of most cancers.
I have two cancer reports for anybody to read.
Please e-mail me at delparkinson@msn.com and I will send my cancer reports for your information.
It is very easy to prevent most cancers. Regards Del.
