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.
