Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS)

Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) is when there are cancer cells or abnormal cells in the milk duct of the breast. DCIS is non-invasive type of breast cancer in which the cancer has not spread to the rest of the body.

DCIS is usually diagnosed during a breast cancer screening. Most women that have DCIS can treat the breast cancer with breast-conserving surgery such as a lumpectomy or by radiation therapy.
