Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare, fast-growing type of breast cancer. The cancer cells block the lymph fluid in the breast tissue and usually don't form lumps.
Treatment involves chemotherapy, breast surgery, and radiation therapy. Afterwards, more chemotherapy or hormone therapy (or both) may be needed.
