Cancer that has spread outside its site of origin and is growing into the surrounding tissues.
Cancer that has spread beyond the layer of tissue in which it developed and is growing into surrounding, healthy tissues -- generally, the stage is either "localized", "regional", or "distant".
Cancers that are capable of going beyond their site of origin and invading neighboring tissue
The spread of cancer from the location where it started into surrounding tissue.
A cancer that has started to invade the tissues surrounding it.
Cancer that has spread beyond the area where it first developed to involve other tissues.
Cancer that has spread to surrounding tissue.
Cancer that has grown beyond its site of origin into neighboring tissue. Invasive does not imply that the cancer has already spread outside the breast. Invasive has the same meaning as infiltrating. Understanding Breast Cancer
Cancer that spreads outside the tissue where it initially developed and which grows into nearby, healthy tissues.
A Cancer that has spread beyond the area it started in, some spread to distant areas of the body, but some do not. Back to Glossary Index
cancer that has spread from its place of origin in the breast lobules or ducts.
"Cancer that can or has spread from its site of origin." -- Clinical Standards for Breast Screening.
Invasive cancer refers to cancer that has spread beyond where it originated to other areas of the body.
Cancer characterized by spreading from its point of origination into other tissues and organs.
(also called infiltrating cancer): cancer that has spread beyond the lobe or duct of origin into the surrounding tissue
Cancer that has spread to surrounding tissues.
Cancer that has spread beyond the layer of tissue in which it developed. Invasive breast cancer is also called infiltrating cancer or infiltrating carcinoma.
A cancer that has metastasized or spread throughout other parts of the body.
a cancer that has broken through a basement membrane and is invading surrounding tissue
cancer which has spread to surrounding tissue.
Cancer that has spread beyond the layer of cells where it first developed to involve adjacent tissues.
a stage of cancer in which cancer cells have spread to healthy tissue adjacent to the tumor.
Cancer that has spread beyond the layer of tissue in which it developed and is growing into surrounding, healthy tissues. Also called infiltrating cancer.
Cancer that has spread beyond the area it originally developed in, to involve adjacent tissues. For example, invasive breast cancers develop in milk glands (lobules) or milk passages (ducts) and spread to the adjacent fatty breast tissue. Some invasive cancers spread to distant areas of the body (metastasize), but others do not. Also called infiltrating cancer. ( See also invasive ductal carcinoma, invasive lobular carcinoma).
Cancer that has spread to nearby tissue, lymph nodes under the arm, or other parts of the body. (Same as infiltrating cancer.)
When cancerous cells have spread to deeper tissue.
cancer that begins in one area and then spreads deeper into the tissues of that area.
cancer that has spread from the duct or lobe into surrounding tissue in the breast.
