DiepCJourney Podcast

Apr 6, 2022

We are discussing lobular breast cancer, also known as invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), with Leigh Pate on the DiepCJourney podcast. Lobular breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed type of invasive of breast cancer. 

Often an understudied subtype of breast cancer I ask Leigh to join us today to help our listeners understand more about it. Leigh founded the Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) in 2017 and continues to work as a research advocate in the breast cancer and ovarian/fallopian tube cancer community.

We encourage monthly self-exams. Leigh and I both had ILC and through self-exams were able to find our breast cancer. We speak about having imaging results interpreted at NCI-Designated Cancer Centers as ILC is often a breast cancer that is difficult to detect from breast cancer imaging.
