Tubular carcinoma: Introduction
Tubular carcinoma: Tubular carcinoma is a rare type of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast. It takes its name from its microscopic appearance, in which the cancer cells resemble small tubes. Tubular carcinomas tend to be small, estrogen-receptor positive, HER2/neu negative. In some cases, tubular cancer cells are mixed with ductal or lobular cancer cells, giving a mixed-tumor diagnosis.
More detailed information about the symptoms,
causes, and treatments of Tubular carcinoma is available below.
Symptoms of Tubular carcinoma
- Patient may not be able to feel a small lump of tubular carcinoma, but it may show up on a routine mammogram. If it is mixed with invasive ductal cancer cells and has formed a more prominent lump, patient might be able to feel the ductal lump. When tubular cancer cells are combined with lobular breast cancer (tubulolobar), the symptoms may resemble invasive lobular carcinoma, such as a thickened area.
