Invasive BC with mixed ductal and lobular features
Just got this finding on biopsy path report. Sound familiar to anyone? The surgeon explained it to me iin a 90 minute appointment. Thought I understood it but now .... I think she said that the specimen had both ductal cancer cells and lobular cancer cells. Also their is no tumor or mass just a "density" or she sometimes says lesion that is 10 cm by 8 cm covered with powder-like microcalcifications. It was a small cluster of these micros that she biopsies. She said she was surprised that it was invasive and mixed. Said she didn't suspect that. Because all of that microcalcification area could contain cancer, and because the area is huge (her word, not mine) I must have a mastectomy. Gosh, is this ever confusing.
