Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC)

Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC) of the breast is a type of breast cancer that begins in the milk-producing glands called the lobules. Invasive forms of breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body.

The common sign of ILC is a thickening of an area of the breast. ILC can be diagnosed during a mammogram, ultrasound of the breasts or MRI. If abnormal cells are found in the breast, doctors may perform a breast tissue biopsy.
