1. High agreement between individual pathologists and reference consensus diagnoses was observed for the verification of invasive breast cancer and benign without atypia. 2. Variability in pathologists’ interpretations led to overdiagnoses of atypia and ductal carcinoma in situ when compared to reference consensus diagnoses. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: The...
1. Adjuvant radiotherapy reduced the risk of same-side recurrence following breast-conserving surgery for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: The SweDCIS (Swedish Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) trial was a long-term randomized controlled trial that evaluated the effect of adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) following breast-conserving surgery...
Image: PD 1. Adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) following local excision reduces the risk for local recurrence (LR) of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) by half at 15 years follow-up. 2. The long-term prognosis of DCIS is favorable and independent of given treatment. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Preventive cancer screenings have significantly...
Image: PD  1. When the term cancer is used to describe ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), significantly more patients chose surgical management compared to medical management or active surveillance.  2. If DCIS is described as a lesion or as abnormal cells, significantly more women chose active surveillance than medication or surgery.  Evidence...
