Breast Cancer Overview

Cancer is a group of diseases in which normal cells change and grow out of control. In breast cancer, the cancerous cells are usually cells of the lobules and ducts (ie, the glands that produce milk and the channels that carry milk to the nipple). Keep in mind that cancer, or carcinoma, of the breast can be broadly divided into two categories:

  • non-invasive or in situ carcinoma: cancer cells are confined to the areas where they originated, either the ducts (ductal carcinoma in situ; DCIS) or lobules (lobular carcinoma in situ; LCIS)
  • invasive carcinoma: cancers that started in ducts or lobules but have spread beyond them to invade surrounding tissues of the breast
