Inflammatory Breast Cancer

I have been married to Mrs. Face for 32 years, but was married previously for 10 years. My first wife, to whom I am still very close, was recently diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

I am posting this just for information purposes because this type of breast cancer has different symptoms than other breast cancers, and the symptoms can mimmick other breast issues such as mastitis.

The prognosis for this type of cancer is not nearly as good as for other types of breast cancer...the overall survival rate is much lower. This type of cancer is a local advanced cancer, meaning that the cancer does not typically start with tumors, but is rather dispersed in the breast, and as a result there is no Stage 1 or Stage 2. The cancer is either Stage 3 involving the breast and lymph nodes, or Stage 4 and metasticized to other parts of the body.

This is a relatively rare form of breast cancer, and is very aggressive, meaning it spreads fast, so it is very very important to obtain the earliest possible diagnosis and catch it before it progresses to Stage 4.

Following is an informational link, which I hope you will read to familiarize yourself with the symptoms...

Faceman thanks for the link any information can be used to prevent suffering and deaths.
Sorry to hear of your ex wifes trouble and I am glad to know you are there to support her. That is more than some people have.
There is nothing that I can say to ease your fears except that I will pray for her and your children . You and Mrs Faceman too.
We often forget that it is not only the person who has cancer or any other life altering diagnosis that deals with the issue. Their families and loved ones suffer also.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers Faceman.

May the G-D of Israel bless you and your loved ones suffering be short and a successful recovery happens soon. Shalom

I hope she gets the very best care available. That you still care about her is no doubt more important than ever to her. God bless

Faceman, I hope and pray that she has a full recovery. Cancer is such a difficult disease to deal with. My mom is a cancer survivor, thank God. Keep us posted on her progress and know that I will keep her in my prayers.
