Lobular breast cancer &  other breast cancers.

Amorvard Foundation.

Compared to other types of breast cancer, lobular breast cancer:

Has different symptoms than other more common types of breast cancer.

May be harder to see on mammogram because it does not cause a firm or distinct lump.

May not be diagnosed until the cancer is large enough to cause symptoms.

Is more likely to involve both breasts and can reoccur many years after the first diagnosis.

Can spread to different-than-typical sites like the stomach, intestine, ovary, kidneys, ureters and eye.

The reason we are having this conversation is not to scare you but just so you are aware and to guide you to take the necessary steps to receiving the right treatment and adhering to recommeded treatment plan by your care team.
