Dr. Harness explains if inflammatory breast cancer is fatal.
Dr. Harness, M.D.:
Fatality, when it comes to inflammatory breast cancer, could be significant, particularly if in addition to the inflammatory cancer, there’s already spread to the other parts of the body. All inflammatory breast cancers are automatically stage 3, and they possibly could be at the same time even stage 4. So our chances of cure keep coming down the more advanced the stage is.
