Breast cancer has proved to be a very fatal disease for women. Like many other cancers it has different types with it. The most common types with which more women are diagnosed are;

Invasive ductal carcinoma

This is the most common type occurring to women. It starts in the ducts of breasts which function to carry milk to the nipples. At initial stages it is not harmful but later on if it breaks through the duct walls it starts invading the nearby tissues. It is the stage when it starts spreading to the other body parts.

Invasive lobular carcinoma

Lobules are the glands used for manufacturing milk in breasts. Lobular carcinoma is the second common breast cancer type and it starts in lobules.

Ductal carcinoma in situ

It is caused because of abnormal cells in ducts. It is non invasive and is considered as the earliest form of cancer in breasts. Due to the mammogram screening cases with this cancer are increasing every year.

Lobular carcinoma in situ

It is a noninvasive type of breast cancer and starts in the lobules of breasts. It is not harmful but it can lead in developing invasive cancer in breasts.

Breast cancer of any type can harm your chest and rest of the body as well and can even prove a dead point. Without relying on this assumption that invasive is not harmful you need to be quick in receiving treatment for any abnormality as early as possible.
