The treatment for breast cancer depends on the type and stage of the disease, standard options include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiation, surgery, and targeted immunotherapy.
There are multiple kinds of breast cancer, each with its own signs, symptoms, and treatment options.
Some of the most common breast cancers include:
- Invasive ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer. It starts in the milk ducts and spreads to the surrounding tissue.
- Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) happens in about one in five new cases. It only affects the cells lining the milk ducts. DCIS is an early, very treatable state of breast cancer.
- Invasive lobular carcinoma makes up about 1 in 10 cases of breast cancer. It starts in the milk-producing glands and spreads through the other tissues.
Less common types of breast cancer include inflammatory breast cancer, Paget disease of the nipple, Phyllodes tumor, angiosarcoma, and breast cancer during pregnancy.
