    The three that I know of are inflammatory, paget's disease, and metaplastic. These are all RARE and aggressive. Other types of breast cancer can be thought of as a more aggressive version because of their grade. The grading is either 1, 2, or 3. One, being slower growing where 3, grows and spreads faster. The other key to breast cancer is early detection. If breast cancer is detected at a later stage, it is more difficult to --corral the bugger.-- NOT impossible, but more difficult. The patient just has to spend more --quality time-- with her oncologist, surgeon, etc. The more I learn about breast cancer, the more there is to understand. Science keeps peeling away the layers of the unknown regarding breast cancer. We, as patients benefit from their discoveries. Take care, Sharon

    Also it makes a difference if your receptors are positive or negative. But, all are treatable. The kind you have and the postive or negative receptors determine the type of treatment you will advised to have. Good luck to you.

    Yes, there are different types of aggressive breast cancer out there. I was diagnosised with Invasive Caricoma Breast Cancer and it was so aggressive that I had to have surgery immediately because it was growing very fast. I didn't have a chance to get a second opinion but it was the best decision to have a mastectomy of the left breast done. I am going thru chemo and then I will go thru radiation but my onocologist indicated to me that I had made the best decision of my life; so don't be afraid to ask all the questions you need to be answered and there isn't a dumb question never. Take care and God Bless
