Abstract

This ninth article in our series on breast disease will focus on ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast - a proliferation of potentially malignant cells within the lumen of the ductal system. An overview of the management of ductal carcinoma in situ including pathology, clinical presentation and relevant investigations is presented, and the roles and dilemmas of surgery, radiotherapy and endocrine therapy are discussed.
