breast cancer; mammary carcinomas; breast carcinoma

- |BP|

Breast carcinomas with a worse prognosis than invasive ductal carcinomas include basal-like breast carcinoma , invasive micropapillary carcinoma , metaplastic carcinoma , and Her-2 + / HER2+ carcinomas.

Carcinomas with a better prognosis than invasive ductal carcinoma: secretory carcinoma , medullary carcinoma , tubular carcinoma , colloid carcinoma , and adenoid cystic carcinoma , pictured here.

Unlike the salivary gland, adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast has a relatively good prognosis.

Types

- mammary invasive carcinomas
- mammary non-invasive carcinomas
