    Breast Cancer Question

    I have a friend who's mother just found out (over the phone) that her biopsy came back positive for Invasive Cribriform Breast Cancer. From what I've read, it's a type of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (I think) I guess the "Cribriform" is a mucus type? I've sent her some info from the American Cancer Society. Anyone have any other information? She is so early into this that she hasn't seen an oncologist yet. Thanks Everyone!!

      I've found that one of the most wonderful thing anyone did for me was Offerring to pray for me. I am positive that those prayers and God's answering them got me through. My brother said... "You're cancer Free!!!!! You can thank me... God was so shocked to hear my prayer, he granted me my request!!!" Well that's my bro. He lives down in Houston... I just noticed you were in McKinney.

      Hello, I am an oncology/end of life nurse. Although my specialty is gyne cancers, I have run across Cribriform in my career. This type of cancer is actually the type that affects the connective tissues of the breast that support the ducts and lobes. Some of the DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) are of this form. I have attached a link to the specific information regarding this type of invasive breast cancer. Best of luck to you and your friend, Carm.

      Thanks for all the information. The links are exactly what they needed. She is meeting with a surgeon today. Not sure what the next step is. Probably meeting with an Oncologist to figure out the best course of treatment.
