A major drawback of this classification is that about 70-80% of the all BC is ultimately grouped to either invasive ductal carcinomas (IDCs) not otherwise specified (NOS) or invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), meaning that histopathological classification is unable to actually mirror the much wider heterogeneity of BC [9,10]. As a result, this classification has minimal prognostic and predictive implications. Other classical clinico-pathological prognostic factors, including tumor size, lymph node status, and lymphovascular invasion, which are derived from careful histological analysis of primary BC samples, is also utilized to predict tumor behavior and guide the use of systemic therapy [...   [tags: mortality and health care estimates] 966 words
