Journal Review in Breast Surgery: Evolution of DCIS Management


Ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS, is a precursor lesion to invasive breast cancer; however, not all DCIS becomes invasive cancer. Given our inability to accurately determine which DCIS lesions will progress, current clinical management consists of surgical resection for everyone with the possible additions of radiation and endocrine therapy. Multiple clinical trials and leaders in the field of breast surgical oncology are challenging our assumptions about the uniform approach to DCIS and are attempting to design treatment based on biology— tune in to hear about the evolving approach to management of DCIS!
