Hi all i was diagnosed a year ago with IDC of no special type with cribriform present and tubular growth pattern it's not pure tubular or cribriform. I'm wondering if anyone has had this type of cancer and what's the prognosis

IDC of no special type (NST) is the most common form of IDC. Cribriform and tubular features are good, but not to the extent that a pure tubular or cribriform carcinoma are in terms of prognosis.
I think prognosis for this diagnosis would be determined more by tumour size/grade and receptors (using the AJCC staging guidelines)

Hope this helps
