This type of breast cancer begins in the milk-producing glands (lobules) of the breast. Invasive cancer means the cancer cells have broken out of the lobule where they began and have the potential to spread to the lymph nodes and other areas of the body. It is the second most common type of breast cancer, accounting for about 10-15% of all breast cancers.
The Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance is a resource I found during my research. This group really understands the characteristics of this cancer and are working hard to educate and advocate for women with ILC. There is so much information in this video. ENJOY!
