Mucinous Carcinoma of Breast

slide 1 of 10


Comments:
Mucinous carcinoma is more common in post-menopausal women. Pure mucinous carcinomas comprise up to 2% of all breast cancers. Focal mucinous differentiation is seen in additional 2% of breast cancers. For prognostic reasons, the term mucinous carcinoma should be applied to pure mucinous tumors. Grossly, the tumor is generally well-circumscribed and has a gelatinous or jelly-like cut surface.
