IBC is the most aggressive type of breast cancer. It tends to grow at a much faster rate than the other types of cancer. IBC grows in sheets or nests of cells in the breast as opposed to growing in a solid tumor. IBC grows in the dermal (skin) lymphatic system which explains why there is usually no lump associated with it. The symptoms of IBC appear due to the cancer cells blocking the lymph vessels below the skin – typically presenting as warm skin and color changes. Because of the involvement of the lymphatic system, IBC carries an initial Stage 3 diagnosis, however, the earlier you detect the disease and begin treatment, the greater your chances of survival.

The hereditary factor is caused by a gene defect, called a mutation, which is inherited from one or both of the parents.
This chap I met told of how this nurse screamed when she spilt chemo on her hand. The matron rushed in to calm her down. They then moved over to inject it into this chap saying that it behaves differently in the bloodstream than on the skin. You can imagine his thoughts at that point.
