Dear TFTX, Papillary carcinoma is a variation of invasive breast cancer-based on what the cells look like under the microscope.  Papillary carcinoma has cells that stick out in little papules (fingerlike projections) thus the name.  This information regarding how it looks under the microscope is only one small piece of the information that is then used to determine further treatment.  Other factors such as tumor size, lymph node status, evidence of spread, estrogen receptor status, as well as information specific to your mother.  All of this information plays a part in terms of treatment options etc.
