Just trying to discern if my local hospital (Duke) is expert enough in ILC in particular, as it seems too many places either still treat it as "similar to IDC" or don't know of the very latest studies you ladies have so helpfully cited on here. Please tell me where you've been treated/by whom and whether they were fully aware of all the cutting-edge ILC research? Thank you!

I was treated at Dana Farber-- at the time, there were not too many distinctions between the two types-- now Dana/Harvard is doing interesting research in this area-they held a great conference this summer that some of us attended. I think Duke is probably a great hospital and you may find that some of their people were at the conference---

good luck
