ILC Whitepaper

White Paper: Patient Advocate Perspective

ILC Patient Priorities

ILC patient advocates attending the 2016 First International ILC Symposium developed a white paper, Advancing Lobular Breast Cancer Research, Screening, Treatment and Follow-up Care.

This paper outlines advocate-identified opportunities to promote ILC as a distinct cancer requiring:

  • Refinements in screening and patient care
  • Enhancements to patient and provider education
  • Substantive measures to accelerate efficient research.

Many of the conclusions in this paper form the basis for LBCA’s formation and our mission.
