Many other types and variants of both ductal and lobular carcinoma, some with prognostic signiﬁcance, have been described. , 2003). The current evaluation of all invasive carcinomas includes assessment of hormone (estrogen and progesterone) receptor status, assessment of erbB2/Her2/neu expression, and/or genomic ampliﬁcation. In fact, the separation of ER-positive and ER-negative breast carcinomas represents one of the earliest informative molecular classiﬁcations.
