Infiltrating Duct Carcinoma

  • Rosemary R. Millis
Part of the Current Histopathology book series (CUHI, volume 7)


Infiltrating duct carcinomas comprise the majority of invasive cancers and most of the tumours are depicted without special features, or not otherwise specified (NOS)1. Some workers divide these tumours into (1) stellate carcinomas with productive fibrosis and (2) circumscribed or multinodular carcinomas2.
