PHP - progressing through recordset on one field but not another

I have a PHP iteration that is failing:

$propType = $row["property_type"];
$typeQuery = "select type_id, property_type from property_type_ids order by type_id asc";
$typeRS = connect_to_database($typeQuery);
      while ($typerow = mysql_fetch_array($typeRS))
                        {
                        $propTypeB = $typerow["property_type"];
                        $typeID = $typerow["type_id"];
                        if($typeID=$propType){
                                    echo $typeID.'='.$propType.' '.$propTypeB.'<br/>';

                              } else {
                                    echo $typeID.'<>'.$propType.'<br/>';                                          
                              }
                        
                        }


The $propType variable is pulling a value from the database (the property id selected) then going through the table with the ID (type_id) and the name of that property (property_type).

Without the "if" statement, it iterates through the records fine. But with the If, it continues to progress through the names - propTypeB, but stops progressing the type_id.

I am totally at a loss as to why this is happening.
