More recently, this phenotype also has been described in breast carcinoma and is a predictor of metastases.
The hospital would have to make choices: 'We are going to have to weigh up a hip replacement against a breast carcinoma.'
There are 2 types of breast carcinoma in situ:
Medullary breast carcinoma is a rare type of breast cancer that often can be treated successfully.
For example, of the 100 primary breast carcinomas, approximately 41% have p14 defects.
In adults, most cases are associated with breast carcinoma or small-cell lung carcinoma.
It is not clear, however, whether fetal cell lines promote the development of tumors or, contrarily, protect women from developing breast carcinoma.
Their histologic appearance is similar to ductal breast carcinoma.
It is also the earliest warning sign of metastatic breast carcinoma.
Switching to an aromatase inhibitor provides mortality benefit in early breast carcinoma.
