Best Practices in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Presented by Beth Overmoyer, MD, FACP
Thursday, September 12, 2019 
11:00–12:00 pm (CDT)

Inflammatory breast cancer signs and symptoms mimic mastitis. Many physicians do not recognize that mastitis is common in younger, premenopausal women but uncommon in the post-menopausal population. The rarity of inflammatory breast cancer compared with the frequency of mastitis or cellulitis of the breast often results in a delay of a cancer work-up in favor of treating mastitis. This delay may affect the patient’s clinical course thus increasing the possibility of symptomatic spread of breast cancer and associated outcomes. 

The webinar will review the clinical presentation of inflammatory breast cancer, discuss the NCCN guidelines for inflammatory breast cancer, and best practices for early diagnosis by primary care physicians, ob-gyn specialists, and advance practice providers.
