Depends on grade: The level of chromosomal aberrations in infiltrating ductal carcinoma is correlated with the grade of the cancer cells. "grade" means the microscopic appearance and corresponds with how closely the cancer cells try to form normal breast structures. High grade or poorly differentiated infiltrating ductal carcinomas tend to have more chromosomal abnormalities than non-high grade carcinomas.
