In brief: Breast Cancer

Tubular carcinoma is a rare form of breast cancer where the microscopic appearance of the tumor cells resemble tubes.
These account for only about 2% of breast cancers and usually carry a good prognosis with low risk of lymph node metastasis. Treatment is usually conservative surgery followed by radiation +/- adjuvant systemic therapy depending on other factors.
