2 min read
ROTARACT CLUB OF UNILORIN DIGITAL AWARENESS ON “BREAST CANCER” IN COLLABORATION WITH ROTARACT CLUB OF WORLD BANK, IMO STATE. Day 2(a) of 3 TYPES OF BREAST CANCER Breast cancers comes in different forms and types. Knowing the type of breast cancer you’ve will let medical practitioners know what steps to take to address it. Here are commonly known types of BC. ⏺ In situ cancersDuctal carcinoma in situ(DCIS) also called intraductal carcinoma and Stage 0 breast cancer. DCIS is a non-invasive or pre-invasive breast cancer. This means the cells that line the ducts have changed to cancer cells but they have not spread through the walls of the ducts into the nearby breast tissue. Because DCIS hasn’t spread into the breast tissue around it, it can’t spread (metastasize) beyond the breast to other parts of the body. ➡ Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) may also be called lobular neoplasia. In this breast change, cells that look like cancer cells are growing in the milk-producing glands of the breast (called the lobules), but they don’t grow through the wall of the lobules. LCIS is not considered to be cancer, and it typically does not spread beyond the lobule (become invasive breast cancer) if it isn’t treated. But having LCIS does increase your risk of developing an invasive breast cancer in either breast later on, so close follow-up is important. ⏺ Invasive (infiltrating) breast cancerInvasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) is the most common type of breast cancer. About 8 of 10 invasive breast cancers are invasive (or infiltrating) ductal carcinomas (IDC). IDC starts in the cells that line a milk duct in the breast, breaks through the wall of the duct, and grows into the nearby breast tissues. At this point, it may be able to spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body through the lymph system and bloodstream. ➡ Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) starts in the milk-producing glands (lobules). Like IDC, it can spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body. About 1  invasive breast cancer in 10  is an ILC. Invasive lobular carcinoma may be harder to detect on physical exam as well as imaging, like mammograms, than invasive ductal carcinoma. And compared to other kinds of invasive carcinoma, about 1 in 5 women with ILC might have cancer in both breasts For information, questions, or enquiries contact out BOD members thus listed: Rtr.
