The treatments for invasive lobular carcinoma fall into two broad categories:
- Local Treatments for ILC: Surgery and Radiation Therapy
- Local treatments treat the tumor and the surrounding areas, such as the chest and lymph nodes.
- Systemic Treatments for ILC: Chemotherapy, Hormonal Therapy, Targeted Therapies
- Systemic treatments travel throughout the body to destroy any cancer cells that may have left the original tumor and to help reduce the risk of the cancer coming back.
