IBC FACTS:

The next time your child, teenager or young adult tell you they think they have a lump or something is wrong with their breast LISTEN to them!  If your family doctor tell you that it is impossible, they are too young.  I would suggest you go to a different doctor in order to save your child’s life.  Please read story below

12 Year Old Girl with IBC

1972: Nichini, FM. (1972). Inflammatory carcinoma of the breast in a 12-year-old girl. Archives of Surgery, 105(3), 505-8. No abstract available.

Carcinoma of the breast in the female child and adolescent is extremely rare. Approximately a dozen cases below the age of 20 can be accepted as truly proved. The case presented here is of further interest, since we believe it to be the first so-called inflammatory breast carcinoma described in a child. The lesion progressed rapidly locally with skin erythema, edema, and

fixation over half the breast. The affected breast was enlarged and generally replaced by tumor with fixation to the chest wall

Report of a Case: A 12-year-old girl consulted her family physician for a cutaneous eruption of the whole body, which was diagnosed as a viral exanthem. Results of physical examination at that time revealed a mass in the upper part of the left breast above a partially retracted nipple, and a definite enlargement of the left breast relative to the right.

Neither the patient nor her mother was aware of any abnormality in the breast at the time of the consultation. Two days later, a biopsy was performed and the mass was reported as an infiltrating carcinoma.

The skin over the whole left breast was erythematous and edematous, with all the clinical signs of an inflammatory carcinoma … It should be pointed out that the patient had been menstruating, albeit irregularly, since the age of 11.
