Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) News and Research

RSS
Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) is a condition where the cells lining the milk ducts (the channels in the breast that carry milk to the nipple) are cancerous, but stay contained within the ducts without growing through into the surrounding breast tissue. DCIS may affect just one area of the breast, but can be more widespread and affect different areas at the same time. Sometimes DCIS may be described as pre-cancerous, pre-invasive, non-invasive, or intraductal cancer.
