Diagnosing Inflammatory Breast Cancer can be difficult since the cancer is not apparent on ultrasounds, and Mammograms are often painful and difficult for patients with a tender and swollen breast. This video describes the various methods used by physicians at M. D. Anderson to diagnose and treat IBC. These methods include Breast Sonogram, Breast MRI, PET Scans and Biopsy.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer is a rare type of breast cancer. Unlike more common breast cancer types, Inflammatory Breast Cancer appears as a rash or infection instead of a lump in the breast. M. D. Anderson is home to a clinic for women with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC), believed to be the first such clinic in the world. The Inflammatory Breast Cancer Clinic accepts patients who are newly diagnosed or previously treated, and offers the most innovative treatments currently available.
MD Anderson Cancer Center is currently conducting clinical trials and research in hopes of finding new treatment options for this rapid growing, and difficult to treat disease. For more information contact MD Anderson at 1-877-MDA-6789
