    Keep in mind IBC is extremely rare and usually doesn't form a lump. It won't show on a mammogram or US. Lots of doctors haven't seen a case of IBC. You have to have special kinds of biopsy's.... I don't know what they are. You can Google something like "BIOPSY'S FOR INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER and probably find out what they are. I would insist my doctor do those types of biopsy if this is what you are concerned about. Some doctor's will poo-poo you, make sure you stand tall and demand these special tests. I think they have to take multiple spots for testing but I am not sure. You HAVE to be your own best advocate when it comes to healthcare. Please keep us posted. Take care, Sharon

      Hey! Thank you. I think I'm looking for another diagnosis, my gut is telling me that's not going to happen, my heart wants it to be something else. Onset was the first week of October and has progressed rapidly. I just want answers, no matter what it is. I'm ready either way. I'm prepared for the worst, hoping for the best.
