More About Medullary Carcinoma

Types of Medullary Carcinoma

  • Medullary Thyroid Cancer: This type of cancer occurs in the cells that produce calcitonin hormone, known as parafollicular cells. Medullary thyroid cancer is caused by genetic mutation in the RET protonocogene. It is known as sporadic MTC when it occurs by itself. When it occurs along with tumors of the parathyroid gland it is known as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2).

  • Medullary Carcinoma of the Breast: A rare subtype of invasive ductal carcinoma, medullary carcinoma of the breast is mostly common among women who are in their late 40s and early 50s. BRCA1 mutation leads more so to the disease. This type of medullary cancer does not develop quickly and does not spread to the lymph nodes.

Treatment of Medullary Carcinoma

Medullary Thyroid Cancer

  • Surgery: A total thyroidectomy is performed to remove the thyroid gland and the affected adjacent lymph nodes. A total thyroidectomy is performed in three techniques:

    • Conventional Thyroidectomy: The thyroid gland is removed through an incision made in the center of the neck.

    • Endoscopic thyroidectomy: It is performed with the help of an endoscope that is inserted through small incisions in the neck along with other surgical instruments.

    • Robotic Thyroidectomy: In this technique, in stead of an incision in the middle of the neck, the thyroid gland is approached through incisions made in the chest and armpit.  

  • Radiation: External beam radiation is provided to the patients only when there is a risk of recurrence after the surgery.


Medullary Carcinoma of the Breast

  • Surgery: Breast surgery is primarily performed to get rid of medullary breast cancer. There are two surgical procedures involved:

    • Breast Conserving Surgery: Also known as wide local excision or lumpectomy, in this procedure the malignant tumor is removed along with a marginal normal breast tissue surrounding it.

    • Mastectomy: This procedure is performed to remove the whole breast tissue.

  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy drugs are provided to patients to shrink the cancer before surgically removing it. This is known as neo adjuvant or primary chemotherapy.

  • Radiotherapy: After a breast conserving surgery, the patient would usually receive radiotherapy so as to reduce the risks of recurrence. After a mastectomy, radiotherapy is provided to the chest wall.
