Listen Up: Inflammatory Breast Cancer Podcast

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.

I'm a bit late in commenting on this, but I wanted to say that IBC is very much a real thing. My mom was diagnosed with it in February and trust me, it's scary. Luckily, everyone from her relatively new GP up through her oncologists recognized it for what it was and got her into treatment as quickly as possible. When she was first diagnosed, we went searching for information pertaining specifically to IBC and let me tell you, it was hard to come by. Even the big websites like Susan G Komen and the American Cancer Society had little more than a paragraph about it, and it was covered even less in books about Breast Cancer. Anything like this podcast that can get the word out, I am all for. More people need to be aware that this is out there because recognizing it for what it is as quickly as possible is hugely important in treating it.
