After bilateral, infiltrating lobular, can cancer cells move through chest walls later on?

    Unfortunately, Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma (also known as Invasive Lobular Carcinoma - ILC) has the potential to spread or metastasize to other parts of your body. Even though at first these cancer cells are in the lining of your milk lobes, they have the capability to invade or infiltrate the nearby tissue outside the lobes, including the chest wall. It is important to continue to follow-up with your healthcare provider and keep an eye on this possibility. Hope this helps!

    Scary, because I just had bilateral mastectomy and my lymph nodes came negative too. But will be scary to find out if I other tissues were affected or will be.
