Although you’re probably used to hearing breast cancer discussed as a single disease, there are several different kinds. And, the type of breast cancer a woman has dictates the course of treatment. If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, it’s important to arm yourself with information to understand your treatment options.
In this video, you will learn about the different types of breast cancer. You will learn about lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), early stage, locally advanced, and metastatic breast cancers.
