Breast Cancer and Benign Breast Diseases Treated at Hoag Breast Center
There are many different types of breast cancer, none of which will affect any two women in quite the same way.

Benign Breast Diseases
- Phyllodes tumor
- Breast cyst
- Flat epithelial atypia
Breast Cancer Types
- Non-invasive ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)
- Invasive ductal carcinoma
- Invasive lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS)
- Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC)
- Inflammatory breast cancer
- Adenoid cystic carcinoma
- Low-grade adenosquamous carcinoma
- Medullary carcinoma
- Mucinous (colloid) carcinoma
- Papillary carcinoma
- Tubular carcinoma
- Metaplastic carcinoma
In some cases, tumors can also be a mix of lobular and ductal carcinoma tissue. The symptoms of cancer and benign breast disease can be very similar, and often overlap. In many cases, breast cancer may not present any symptoms in the early stages. It is important to seek medical attention for any noticeable changes in the breast, or symptoms such as pain, nipple discharge, and changes to the color/texture of the skin around the breasts and nipples to obtain an accurate diagnosis.
