  • Please change your description of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. You don’t NORMALLY have a red swollen breast…it comes on sometimes over night…or just swelling overnight…see our website: http://www.eraseibc.com
    And….there is yet no cure for IBC (not IBS). The earliest IBC can be caught is stage 3B (there are only 4 stages to cancer)….but if caught early..there is a very good chance it can be stopped from moving into stage 4 which is the cancer moving from the breast to other parts of your body.
