One LBCA Patient Advocate Pleads for More ILC Research


LBCA patient advocate Diane Mapes' recently published piece in Healthline Media, Inc. decries the fact that ILC is still so understudied, and calls for action. Read her piece on our website and think about joining the LBCA effort to help change that.

"Hidden, 'no lump' lobular is the most common breast cancer you’ve never heard of"

Check Out LBCA's Research Library with References to the Most Important and Current ILC Research

LBCA's Library On ILC is the Go-To Resource for the Most Important and Current ILC Studies  

LBCA's easily searchable library contains a comprehensive reference list of ILC research and studies related to lobular breast cancer including studies on detection, characteristics, risk of recurrence, locations of recurrence and clinical trials. In some cases, it contains full, downloadable versions of landmark studies and reviews such as Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer as a Distinct Disease: Implications for Therapeutic Strategy - by Luveta, and Metzger's Retrospective study: Mixed Invasive Ductal and Lobular Carcinoma of the Breast: Prognosis and the importance of Histologic Grade.  We we are routinely updating it to ensure we have the most current and important ILC research.
