invasive ductal carcinoma

also called infiltrating ductal carcinoma. A cancer that starts in the milk passages (ducts) of the breast and then breaks through the duct wall, where it grows into the fatty tissue of the breast. At this point, it can spread elsewhere. It is the most common type of breast cancer, accounting for about 80% of all invasive breast cancers.
