Invasive Lobular Carcinoma

By Anonymous User

A cancer that arises in the milk-producing glands of the breast and then breaks through the walls to involve the adjacent fatty tissue. From this site, it may then spread elsewhere in the breast. About 15% of invasive breast cancers are invasive lobular carcinomas. It is often difficult to detect by physical examination or even by mammography.
