Treatment Options for Inflammatory Breast Cancer
Treatment of inflammatory breast cancer may include the following:
- Chemotherapy followed by surgery (breast-conserving surgery or total mastectomy), with lymph node dissection followed by radiation therapy. Additional therapy (chemotherapy, hormone therapy, or both) may be given.
- Clinical trials testing new anticancer drugs, new drug combinations, and new ways of giving treatment.
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with inflammatory breast cancer. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
