Title: Invasive Lobular Carcinoma of the Breast
Description: Invasive lobular carcinoma of the breast; drawing shows a lobe, ducts, lobules, and fatty tissue in a cross section of the breast. There are also three separate pullouts showing a normal lobe, a normal lobule, and a lobule with invasive lobular carcinoma and cancer cells spreading outside it.

Invasive lobular carcinoma begins in the lobules (milk glands) of the breast and spreads outside the lobules to other tissues in the breast. It can also spread through the blood and lymph systems to other parts of the body.
