Breast cancer types
|Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC)||Carcinomatous cells are seen below the basement membrane of lactiferous ducts. Otherwise, there are no specific histologic characteristics, essentially making it a diagnosis of exclusion.|
|Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)||Malignant epithelial cells confined to the ductal system of the breast, without invasion through the basement membrane.|
|Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC)||The "classic" pattern is round or ovoid cells with little cytoplasm in a single-file infiltrating pattern, sometimes concentrically giving a targetoid pattern.|
|Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS)||
Cells have indistinct cell borders, pale cytoplasm, and uniform small nuclei with evenly distributed chromatin and inconspicuous nucleoli.
|Mucinous carcinoma||Extracellular mucin areas around tumor cells.|
|Medullary carcinoma||Seemingly fused tumor cells (syncytial pattern), and a prominent lymphoid infiltrate.|
