About Lobular Breast Cancer

Invasive lobular breast cancer (ILC) is the sixth most frequently diagnosed cancer of women in the US with 39,000 new patients diagnosed each year.  

Research indicates that ILC is a unique histological subtype of breast cancer with distinct biological and behavioral differences. It’s time to advance research and refine treatments for patients with lobular breast disease.
