Episode Summary

The Breasts That Changed Color
After twenty-seven-year-old Amanda Nixon has breast reduction surgery, she develops a strange set of symptoms. She has spasms of pain in her right arm; a painful, hardened mass on her right breast; dimples on her right breast; and a purple discoloration of her right breast from one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). Since young Andrea has been born, she has been worrying her parents with her troubling symptoms. She cries a lot more often than normal with alternating episodes of frequent smiling, vomiting after every feeding, developmental delays, and jerky movements. It turns out that Andrea has been suffering from a rare neurological disorder called Angelman syndrome.moreless
