As the number of people I know or know of who have been diagnosed with or who have died from cancer increases, so the idea that it’s only something that affects other people fades away. My attitude these days is very different to what it was ten years ago.

Today I was sent a link to a video about Inflammatory Breast Cancer, which accounts for something between 1% and 2% of all breast cancer cases. I’d never heard of it, nor had *Twinkle*, and as the video explains, as there’s no lumps involved it’s often not detected, or mistaken for something else.

If you have breasts or know someone who does you might want to take a look at, just to be aware.

  1. Oh wow….I never knew about it, either. Thanks so much for posting that video! Frightening, but better to be informed.

  2. Thanks for posting though it’s kind of scary. Better to be informed so thanks again. Glad that you’re happy in Japan and getting on fine so far too. Hope the job doesn’t wear you out completely!
