In the course of tumor development, the phenotypic of breast cancer constantly changes. Breast cancer is a clinically and biologically/pathologically heterogeneous illness, and this may be a contributing factor. It is crucial to have accurate prognostic data when counseling patients and formulating treatment strategies. While factors like age and menopausal status can be used as prognostic indicators in clinical parameters, crucial prognostic indicators in histology include tumour size and extent, histological type, histological grade, and the presence or absence of lymph node involvement.
