What Are The Diagnosis and Staging Of Breast Cancer?

Stage IV

The cancer has spread to other parts of the body, most often the bones, lungs, liver, or brain. This is also known as metastatic breast cancer.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer

In inflammatory breast cancer, cancer has spread to the skin of the breast, and the breast looks red and swollen and feels warm. The redness and warmth occur because the cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the skin. The skin of the breast may appear dimpled, like the skin of an orange. There may not be any lumps in the breast that can be felt.
