Inflammatory Breast Cancer Awareness Night 2016 Massachusetts

On October 7, 2016, over 200 audience members in Stoneham learned about the most aggressive form of breast cancer, Inflammatory Breast Cancer, in loving memory of wife and mom, Louise. 

Know and share the symptoms:  rapid, unusual increase in breast size; breast heaviness, soreness, aching or stabbing pain; redness, rash, blotchiness or warmth of breast skin; a “bug bite” or “bruise” that doesn’t go away; persistent itching of breast or nipple; skin ridging, thickening or dimpling like an orange peel; nipple discharge, flattening, retracting or change in color; or swollen lymph nodes under the arm or above the collar bone.  See your health care provider immediately.  Get a proper diagnosis by biopsy.
