Tubulolobular carcinoma of the breast

Dr Henry Knipe and Radswiki et al.

A tubulolobular carcinoma (TLC) of the breast is considered a subtype of breast cancer that features of both invasive lobular carcinoma and tubular carcinoma of the breast. It therefore exhibits features of both ductal and lobular differentiation. Multifocality, muticentricity and percentage of positive axillary lymph nodes may be more frequent in TLC than with a pure tubular carcinoma of the breast 2.
