Background information on Ductal Carcinoma In Situ [When available]

Ductal carcinoma in situ (or DCIS) is the most common type of noninvasive breast cancer in women. Ductal carcinoma refers to the development of cancer cells within the milk ducts of the breast. In Situ means in place and refers to the fact that the cancer has not moved out of the duct and into any surrounding tissue. DCIS can be difficult to detect by physical examination and is usually discovered through a mammogram as very small specs of calcium known as microcalcifations.
