Hi all wanting to pick your brains.
I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer early July started EC chemo end of Julh with plan of 4 cycles EC followed by 4 cycles PTD.
After the first cycle I noticed my breast getting bigger and more swelling in armpit consultant has arranged for MRI and review in the time before chemo 3. She says she is thinking the cancer may be more aggressive than thought and may need to go straight to PTD.
I am completely freaking out. How common is this? What does it mean to my chances of cure? I am 51 with two teenagers I am so scared.
Does this mean the cancer has had weeks unchecked to spread - CT in July had showed no spread but how reliable is that?
Any insights would be so appreciated.
