How Do Doctors Characterize Breast Cancers?
Doctors divide breast cancers into types based on where in the breast the cancer starts, the types of hormone receptors on the cancer cells, and how the cancer spreads. These things help determine what treatments doctors can use, as well as your outlook for recovery.
Breast cancers can be noninvasive or invasive. Breast cancer is noninvasive when it hasn’t spread beyond the area in the breast where it began.
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is an early type of breast cancer that hasn’t spread beyond the lining of the milk ducts. One in 5 breast cancers is DCIS. #breastcancer #breastcancerawarenessmonth #breastcancerawareness #epidemiology #drjustinsloane #shorts
