In brief: Breast cancer

I think your mother is diagnosed to have breast cancer, if not please let us know.
Tubular cancer is one type of breast cancer that is usually less aggressive that the more common type (ductal cancer). However, treatment is essentially the same, if the cancer is small and early stage, partial mastectomy with breast conservation, lymph node sampling and radiation afterwards is usual.
