Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare, aggressive form of breast cancer characterized by breast swelling, redness, and bruised or pitted skin. If symptoms occur, it’s important to seek care immediately from an inflammatory breast cancer specialist because the disease can spread quickly and the signs can be mistaken for a breast infection called mastitis. Duke’s team of inflammatory breast cancer specialists has the experience and tools to diagnose your cancer early and treat it effectively. Receiving your care at a major medical center like Duke will improve your chance of having a positive outcome.
