The medullary type of ductal carcinoma is a soft, bulky, well-defined tumor with diffuse lymphocytic infiltration. It has clear edges in contrast to scirrhous ductal carcinoma. It may have central hemorrhage and cyst formation. It is slow-growing, does not adhere to skin and spreads late to axillary nodes.

Colloid or mucinous ductal carcinoma is a large, bulky, gelatinous tumor with a slimy, purple-tinged cut surface and sharp margins. Like the medullary form, it is slow-growing and spreads late. 

Papillary ductal carcinoma also tends to be large and bulky with cystic components. It too is less aggressive than scirrhous. 

Tubular ductal carcinoma as the name implies is characterized by the formation of tubular structures.
