TYPES OF BREAST CANCER
Breast cancer manifests in two broad forms: non-invasive and invasive.
- NON-INVASIVE BREAST CANCER (DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU, DCIS): Confined to the breast ducts, DCIS is characterized by abnormal cell growth that has not spread into the surrounding tissue. It is typically detected through mammograms.
- INVASIVE BREAST CANCER: Cancer cells breach the duct lining, infiltrating surrounding breast tissue. They may also spread through lymph nodes.
Both non-invasive and invasive breast cancers are equally serious, demanding vigilant attention.Podcast 1 - Dr Sybille Podcast 2 - Dr Sybille
