Ductal Carcinoma in Situ vs Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
This typical type of breast cancer starts in the milk ducts, which lie below the skin and lead to the nipple.

Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), also called penetrating ductal carcinoma, is cancer that began growing in the duct and has attacked the fatty tissue of the breast beyond the duct. IDC is the most common form of breast cancer, representing 80 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses.
