A few years ago, I received multiple mass e-mails from friends warning me about inflammatory breast cancer. I have to tell you: I ignored them. It seemed like an urban myth to me at the time.
Well, I was wrong, and maybe you ignored information about this form of breast cancer too. Since the month of October is dedicated to increasing breast cancer awareness, I thought I should share a podcast produced by the Mayo Clinic about inflammatory breast cancer. I learned a lot about the disease and all I had to do was listen.
While the podcast is a little dry, it is only seven minutes long. I think you should spend seven minutes of your time to learn about this variation on breast cancer. It is an aggressive form of cancer and spreads quickly to the lymph system. Yep, that was my scare tactic to get you to pay attention.
Here is the Mayo Clinic podcast. You can also read the transcript too.
