Do not treat Ductal Carcinoma in Situ A recent Swedish study recommends radiotherapy (RT) for the treatment of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), It is based on flawed statistics which I explain. When I spot a publication that writes:”studies show that adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) lowers the risk of . . .” I become suspicious since RT is one of the most dangerous treatments in medicine. It is clear to me that the risk of radiotherapy is much greater than the risk of DCIS. So what is the real message of this statistic? Follow me to find the flaw. Their statistic shows that that in 30% of women BCS did neither cure, nor prevent new DCIS. They received a needless treatment! Radiotherapy lowered the overall DCIS incidence but did not affect its yearly rate. RT reduced DCIS manifestation, but did not interfere with cancer progression. Both breasts constitute one evolving cancer field. DCIS is a biomarker of this field. Since its yearly incidence rises by 0.01% this is also the incidence rate of the breast cancer field. Radiotherapy did not reduce progression of the field. Treatment of DCIS did not stop. cancer progression. In both arms DCIS continued popping up at the same rate. You may regard RT as a cosmetic (symptomatic) treatment. This DCIS story reveals the poor state of the theory of medicine. It is guided by floppy statistics , and spreads a fatalistic message: No matter what you do it’s all in your genes. DCIS treatment does not cure, nor does it stop cancer progression. Therefore do not treat DCIS! Do you still remember this? “Above all do not harm!”

We teach you about DCIS and how it is treated. This pre-cancerous problem is also a risk factor for developing invasive cancer and is linked to the BRCA genetic mutation. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. Is DCIS a cancer or a pre-cancerous growth? 2. What exactly is the threat to my health from DCIS? 3. Are both surgery and radiation always needed for DCIS? 4. May I have a copy of my pathology reports? 5. Do I qualify for genetic testing if I have DCIS? 6. Will DCIS turn into an invasive cancer if not treated? Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) refers to breast cells that are growing abnormally in an area of the breast, but have not yet evolved to the point where they are considered “invasive breast cancer” and can spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Even the medical field is unsure whether to call it “non-invasive” breast cancer or a “pre-cancerous” problem. By definition, DCIS is considered a Stage O breast cancer. Important facts if you have DCIS: *If left untreated, it can evolve into an invasive breast cancer *You have a slightly higher lifetime risk of forming a new cancer in either breast in the future *You may now qualify for BRCA genetic testing. How is DCIS different from invasive cancer? Invasive Breast Cancer can threaten your life because it mau have the capacity to spread (metastasize) to other organs of the body. DCIS does not yet have this ability to spread, but it might if it evolves into an invasive breast cancer in the future. So we treat DCIS very seriously in order to lessen the risk of it developing into an invasive, life-threatening problem. Learn more about “Invasive Breast Cancer“ with our video lesson (here). What is the chance I will die of my DCIS? The risk is very low. The most comprehensive study (here) on the subject in 2015 showed that the risk of dying from any type of breast cancer 20 years after having your DCIS treated with a lumpectomy and radiation is about 1%. One take home message from this study is that you have plenty of time to make decisions with your breast specialists about how to best treat your DCIS. Lumpectomy or Mastectomy for DCIS? Removal of the area of DCIS with surgery is usually the first treatment. A lumpectomy removes the area with a surrounding margin of normal tissue. It is a great surgery if the area of DCIS is small. Radiation is generally recommended after surgery to further lessen the risk of the DCIS or an invasive cancer growing back in that area of the lumpectomy. Some women who are older or have a lower-risk type of DCIS sometimes can avoid radiation after a lumpectomy. A mastectomy is generally recommended only if DCIS involves a large area of the breast and thus would not be a good candidate for a lumpectomy and radiation. A mastectomy for DCIS does not make you live longer, but it does reduce the chance of cancer growing back in that breast. Radiation is generally not needed after a mastectomy for DCIS. Take our video lesson on “Lumpectomy or Mastectomy“ (here) to learn more. You and your breast surgeon must work closely together to decide what surgery is best for your unique cancer situation. Should I take “anti-estrogen” medicines for DCIS? When someone is diagnosed with DCIS, the pathologists will run special studies on the tumor cells to determine if Estrogen receptors and Progesterone receptors are present. If your DCIS is “Estrogen receptor positive,” taking anti-estrogen medications for 5 years can lessen the chance of developing a new breast cancer (either DCIS or invasive cancer) over the next 5 to 10 years if you had a lumpectomy. Taking “tamoxifen” or an “aromatase inhibitor” medication for this purpose is called “chemoprevention.” If a woman has bilateral mastectomies there is no need for chemoprevention because the breast tissue has been removed. Women with DCIS are felt to have an increased risk for developing new cancers in both breasts in the future. Taking these medications can reduce the risk of new breast cancers in these higher risk women, but these drugs are not without potential side effects and risks. That is why a “risk vs benefit” discussion with a medical oncologist is important. You may qualify for genetic testing if you have DCIS. DCIS is now known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation in as similar way as women with invasive breast cancer. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

Carcinoma in situ (CIS), also known as in situ neoplasm, is a group of abnormal cells. While they are a form of neoplasm there is disagreement over whether CIS should be classified as cancer. This controversy also depends on the exact CIS in question (i.e. cervical, skin, breast). Some authors do not classify them as cancer recognizing that they can potentially become cancer. Others classify certain types as a non-invasive form of cancer. The term "pre-cancer" may also be used. These abnormal cell grow in their normal place thus "in situ" (from Latin for "in its place"). For example, carcinoma in situ of the skin, also called Bowen's disease, is the accumulation of dysplastic epidermal cells within the epidermis only, that has failed to penetrate into the deeper dermis. For this reason, CIS will usually not form a tumor. Rather, the lesion is flat (in the skin, cervix, etc.) or follows the existing architecture of the organ (in the breast, lung, etc.). Exceptions include CIS of the colon (polyps), the bladder (pre-invasive papillary cancer), or the breast (ductal carcinoma ''in situ'' or lobular carcinoma in situ).

http://www.oginski-law.com Ductal carcinoma in situ is considered to be Stage 0 breast cancer. It's also known as DCIS. What is that? It's a localized breast cancer that has not yet invaded the tissues surrounding the localized lesion. Some medical experts believe this cancer does not need treatment. Others disagree. You might ask yourself, "How can anyone suggest I not get treatment for a confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer?" Watch the video to learn more.

DCIS is one of the most popular terms in relation to breast cancer. There are about 40,000 cases per year. Although we use this term on many of our videos, one of the most popular questions asked by our viewers is, “What exactly is DCIS? What does it stand for?” DCIS is an abbreviation that stands for ductal carcinoma in situ. According to Surgical Oncologist Dr. Jennifer Manders, it is a non-invasive breast cancer that can be diagnosed based on a needle biopsy. Even though DCIS is associated with being a stage 0 breast cancer, it doesn’t always stay DCIS. It can progress. It has the ability to become invasive cancer, although this isn’t true for every DCIS case. Watch the video to hear Dr. Manders talk about the importance of understanding ductal carcinoma in situ.

VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Specialists: 1. What is invasive breast cancer? 2. What type of breast cancer do I have? 3. What is the chance I will die of my breast cancer? 4. What are my receptor results? 5. May I have a copy of my pathology report? 6. Do I qualify for genetic testing? 7. What is invasive breast cancer? Invasive breast cancer is defined by breast cells that grow abnormally fast and have developed the ability to spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. It can take years for breast cells to slowly develop the genetic changes (mutations) to change from a normal cell to an invasive cancer cell. But once they do, some spread more rapidly and others grow very slowly and may not spread at all beyond the breast. Invasive breast cancer can threaten your life. “Non-invasive” breast cancer are cells that also grow abnormally fast, but cannot yet spread beyond the breast to threaten someone’s life. Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) is an example of non-invasive breast cancer and is generally categorized under “breast cancer” by most organizations. It is covered in our “Non-invasive DCIS” lesson and is more of a “pre-cancerous” condition. Important facts if you have an Invasive Breast Cancer: Treatments can cure 90% of all women with breast cancer The majority of all patients are diagnosed at an early stage Surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation are treatment options You have time before choosing a treatment pathway You may qualify for genetic testing Types of invasive breast cancer: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma is the most common (70%) type of invasive breast cancer. It is called “ductal” because the cancer cells originate from the cells lining the milk ducts. There are many other factors beyond “type” of cancer that are important. Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma occurs in less than 20% of patients. It is called “lobular” because the cells originate from the “lobules” of the milk ducts. Lobular cancers are no worse or better than invasive ductal cancers from a survival perspective. There are some unique features of lobular cancers that can affect diagnosis and treatment. Ask you physician how an invasive lobular carcinoma is different from an invasive ductal carcinoma. Other types: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (5%) is a very aggressive cancer. Colloid and Mucinous (3%) are considered less aggressive breast cancers and carry a lower risk to one’s health. There are other less common types of invasive breast cancer that we have not covered. What is the chance I will die of my cancer? Most women just diagnosed with breast cancer have no idea how much of a risk to their life their unique situation poses. Any invasive breast cancer does impart some level of risk to your life. However, this risk is usually less than you would assume. Why are “receptors” important? Receptors are tiny proteins on the surface of the cells that act like “light switches” that can turn on and off cancer cell growth. The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and HER2 receptor results are incredibly important for you to know and understand. Take our lesson on “My Tumor Receptors” to learn the essentials. How do you treat invasive breast cancer? The most common first treatment for early stage invasive breast cancer is surgery, possibly followed by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and then hormonal therapy. Breast cancer treatment is incredibly complex and there can be many different approaches to the same type of breast cancer. There are some situations that are better treated by “neoadjuvant chemotherapy” as a first treatment rather than surgery. The Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to help you to make the best treatment decisions with your breast specialists in your community. You may qualify for genetic testing Invasive breast cancer is known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Most breast cancers are not the result of the BRCA mutation. In fact, it is estimated that the BRCA and similar genetic mutations cause only 10 to 15% of all breast cancers. It is important to ask your physicians if you meet the guidelines for genetic counseling and testing. Take our “BRCA Genetic Testing” lesson to learn more.

Although breast cancer has been a human disease for thousands of years, ductal carcinoma in situ or DCIS is a relatively new diagnosis. Researchers are continuing to find new information about this breast cancer subtype. Before mammography was a routine part of medical care, DCIS was not found often. Now, approximately 24% of all new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in the United States are classified as DCIS, with one case of DCIS detected per 1300 screening mammograms in North America.

https://lajollasurgical.com/ DCIS stands for ductal carcinoma in situ. This means the cancer cells are inside the milk ducts or 'in situ' (in place) and have not developed the ability to spread either within or outside the breast. DCIS is an early form of breast cancer and may be described as a pre-invasive, non-invasive or intraductal cancer. General surgeon, Cheryl Olson, MD, joined Surgical Associates of La Jolla in 1998. While on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, Dr. Olson has been a leader in the community serving as section chief in general surgery, on the Ximed board of directors, as well as president of both the San Diego Society of General Surgeons and the San Diego Chapter of the American College of Surgeons. Exemplifying the quality of her care and the utmost respect of her peers, she has been selected as one of "San Diego’s Top doctors” five times in the last 8 years. Dr. Olson’s expertise and care of cancer patients includes state-of-the-art procedures for treating breast cancer including ultrasound guided biopsy, breast conservation and the use of accelerated partial breast radiation catheters. All care she provides is highly specialized and tailored to the unique needs of the patient, which may include nipple and areolar sparing mastectomy followed by immediate reconstruction which are coordinated with an experienced plastic surgeon.

In this video from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), breast cancer surgeon Stephen Edge, MD, Chair of Breast and Soft Tissue Surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, explains how ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is different from invasive breast cancer and why women with ductal carcinoma in situ usually do not get chemotherapy. The NCCN is a not-for-profit alliance of 21 leading cancer centers—including Roswell Park Cancer Institute—dedicated to improving care for cancer patients. You can find more information on breast cancer in the NCCN Guidelines for Patients with Breast Cancer, available at www.NCCN.com.

Women diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) are confused about whether or not DCIS is cancer or not. MDs are no different! About 2% of DCIS cancers are lethal and the other 98% will die with it and not from it. Twenty to twenty five percent of all breast cancers are DCIS. Mainstream treatment for this condition includes surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Women and many MDs are questioning this approach, but it is good news for the pharmaceutical companies, surgeons, radiologists, and oncologists because treating DCIS is an extremely profitable business. The diagnosis is usually made by mammography, and differentiation between those cancers that are potentially lethal and those that are incidental is not possible. It may be possible using breast thermography to get more information about which of these tumors is most likely to be malignant. Take Dr. Saputo's Breast Cancer Health Assessment Once you have breast cancer you need to know the best strategies to slow down or reverse its growth.

Invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) is a form of breast cancer that originates in the cells lining the ducts of the breast. In this type breast cancer, the cells have begun to spread to surrounding breast tissue, with the capacity to eventually spread to other areas of the body. IDC is the most commonly diagnosed form of breast cancer and accounts for roughly 75% of all cases.

Dr Mamounas talks to ecancertv at SABCS 2015 about the outcomes of a study comparing the use of adjuvant anastrozole versus tamoxifen in postmenopausal patients with estrogen-receptor (ER) positive ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Traditionally women with estrogen-receptor (ER) positive DCIS undergoing lumpectomy have been treated with adjuvant tamoxifen. So the aim here was to see if treatment with anastrozole was as good at preventing local recurrence, Dr Mamounas explains. Postmenopausal women under the age of 60 years particularly seemed to benefit from anastrozole rather than tamoxifen, he observes, but there was no advantage of one treatment over the other in older women. Anastrozole and tamoxifen have different side effect profiles, he notes, which would also influence treatment choice.

This is my Breast Cancer story. I was diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) Stage 2a breast cancer. It was diagnosed as stage 2 due to the size of the tumor which was 2.1mm. *Correction, in the video I said that it was 2 months or so from time of diagnosis to surgery; but it was 1 month.* Disclaimer: This video is about MY story, MY experience and MY opinions only.
