Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. The most common pathologic subtypes of breast cancer originate in the terminal duct lobular unit in either the ducts (ductal carcinoma) or lobules (lobular carcinoma). These subtypes account for 80%–85% of primary breast cancers. The origin of the breast cancer can only be determined by the microscopic appearance of the cancer cells obtained at biopsy. Usually, breast cancers manifest as irregularly shaped masses, with or without microcalcifications. Therefore, many breast cancers are diagnosed on the basis of these findings at mammography or ultrasonography (US).
