Abstract

Medullary carcinoma of the breast accounts for 2–7 % of all invasive breast cancers. They tend to occur more frequently in younger women. Medullary carcinomas are found more commonly in carriers of BRCA 1 mutations, but not all BRCA1 mutation-related cancers are likely to be medullary cancers.
