My ex-mother-in-law was just diagnosed with IBC. She has ignored it for 2 years and it is now a raised rash with a scabby area about 1-2 inches in diameter.
I have two daughters and am also concerned for their wellfare. My oldest daughter had a lump removed at 18 and it was atypical ductal hyperplasia. She had 4 new lumps at 24 and had a double simple mastectomy with reconstructive surgery (last month). My youngest daughter has had no problems.
I would like to know what the "Typical" life expectancy is from Stages III or IV of IBC. I understand that there are treatments and possible cures.
