How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma spread?

It depends

Breast_cancer
Tumors that are grade 3, or that have a high "proliferation rate", may spread more quickly than grade 1 or 2. Tumors that are ER- (estrogen receptor negative) or HER2+ spread more quickly than other types. Inflammatory breast cancer of any type can spread in days; the other types of invasive ductal carcinoma generally take months.

How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma begin metastasis?

Variable

Open-uri20120703-22530-n670ud
It is well-established that cancer survival is related to timing of diagnosis, however, it's not that simple. Some aggressive cancers may spread very early and others may never regardless of timing. Furthermore, one's overall health (and immune system) may play a major role. Thankfully, most breast cancers are curable.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma develop metastasis?

Can be quick, but

Cancer
could be years or never. You do not mention: size; stage, nodes + or -, age, receptor status (ER, PR, Her-2-neu). Breast cancer treatment can effect chance of relapse. I find the questions about speed odd...The true answer is we do not know in an individual what will happen, and rely on group statistics to frame what we tell patients. I emphasize, that individual may not behave like a group.

How fast does invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast begin to metastasis?

Depends

General_anesthesia
Invasive breast cancer has the ability to spread but not all invasive cancers do spread, especially if caught early. Cancer grows at different rates in people depending on age, hormone status of the tumor and genetic make up of the person. It is important to understand all of your options regarding treatment.

Dr. Raja A. Mudad answered:

Can invasive ductal carcinoma spread to other parts of the body?

Yes

Cancer
Depending on the stage, untreated it will definitely spread, if caught early and treated, then less likely, but monitoring for a long time (5-10 years) is necessary

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

How fast could invasive ductal carcinoma metastasis?

Highly Variable

Breast_cancer
The risk of breast cancer growing outside of the breast is most dependent on the aggressiveness of the cancer and the stage at diagnosis; it is less related to the TYPE of breast cancer (ductal, lobular,etc). While metastatic disease may be present at the time of diagnosis, a majority of breast cancer patients NEVER develop metastases.

Dr. Sean T. Canale answered:

How long does treatment usually last for invasive ductal carcinoma?

Depends

Cancer
The length of treatment depends on the components of multidisciplinary care. Surgery can range from outpatient to 2-3day stay. Chemotherapy can range from 3-6 months depending on the drugs and regimen chosen. Herceptin is typically given for 1 year. Radiation ranges from 5 days (APBI) to 7 weeks. Hormonal therapy is typically given for at least 5 years.

Is it possible for breast high grade ductal carcinoma insitu (dcis) to spread to the major organs ?

Yes, though rare.

Open-uri20121117-25206-1iewj3l
We know that a very small % of pts with high-grade DCIS will have lymph node involvement, of which a smaller % can develop distant (metastatic) disease.

Where does invasive ductal carcinoma metastasize?

Many organs

Heart
The first likely tissue where metastases occurs in invasive ductal cancer is the lymph nodes on the armpit or behind the chest wall. Other organs may include the bones, lungs, liver, brain, adrenal glands, skin, bone marrow, the lining around the lungs or heart or the abdomen. Other parts of the body are less often sites of spread.
