Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS)
Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) cannot usually be detected by physical examination alone. A diagnosis of DCIS is usually made from a sample of breast tissue removed by an operation or with a hollow needle (called a needle core biopsy). These procedures are usually done because small deposits or spots of calcium salts, known as microcalcification, are seen on the breast x-ray (mammogram).

Ductal Carcinoma in Situ of the Breast

Free Preview - Ductal Carcninoma in Situ (DCIC), also known as intraductal carcinoma, is a type of breast cancer which is confined to the breast ducts. The breast is composed of glands called "lobules" that produce and release milk after childbirth. The tubes that connect the lobules to the nipple are the ducts in which Ductal Carcinoma in Situ develops.


Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS)

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a noninvasive condition. DCIS can progress to become invasive cancer, but estimates of the likelihood of this vary widely. Some people include DCIS in breast cancer statistics. The frequency of the diagnosis of DCIS has increased markedly in the United States since the widespread adoption of screening mammography.
