Lobular cancer

This event has past.

Location:  Webinar

Program: Online

Address: N/A

Lobular breast cancer (also called invasive lobular carcinoma) is a type of breast cancer that begins in the milk-producing glands (lobules) of the breast. It is the second most common type of breast cancer, accounting for about 10% to 15% of all invasive breast cancers. Lobular cancer has different symptoms than other types of breast cancer, and it may be harder to see on a mammogram because it doesn’t cause a firm or distinct lump in the breast. Our presenter, Sophie Nightingale will outline the main features of lobular cancer and how it is treated.

Sophie is a surgeon who has a special interest in all breast conditions. She works in the public system at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Royal Melbourne Hospital, and Western Health. She also consults privately in Richmond, Ascot Vale and Sunbury.
