Accounting for about 1 percent of breast cancers in the U.S., inflammatory breast cancer is rare. It’s known for being aggressive and progressing rapidly – starting in the milk ducts and spreading in a matter of weeks or months. Inflammatory breast cancer is usually in an advanced stage at the time of diagnosis because it has already spread to the breast skin. The term “inflammatory” reflects the skin involvement.
Inflammatory breast cancer tends to develop at an earlier age than more common forms. Overweight, obese and African-American women have a higher risk of developing it.
