BREAST CANCER – Types & causes.

Types of Breast Cancer?

The most common types of breast cancer include:

  • Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS): Also known as intraductal carcinoma, it is a non-invasive type of breast cancer where cells are lined up in the ducts without invading through the walls of the breast tissue.
  • Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC): Also known as infiltrating ductal carcinoma, it is a type where cancer cells begin the milk duct of the breast and gradually invade through the walls of the breast tissues.


BREAST CANCER is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women ages 15-54, according to the National Cancer Institute, but breast cancer in young women — under age 40 — is very rare. The chances of a woman getting breast cancer in her thirties is one in 250. In her twenties it is one in 2,000.

Young children and adolescents have just a 0.1 percent chance of developing breast cancer, It’s even rarer for a child to develop invasive ductal carcinoma, which is considered to be an adult cancer.
