The introduction of mammographic screening has led to a dramatic increase in the number of cases of pure DCIS diagnosed. Twenty to 25% of screen-detected breast cancers are DCIS compared with 5% of symptomatic breast cancer18,19. Screening women under 50 years of age is associated with even higher proportions of pure DCIS lesions than those seen when screening women over 5020. Ductal carcinoma in situ represents a spectrum of disease. Low grade DCIS has only a 25–50% chance of developing into (lowgrade) invasive cancer at 30 years and has low rates of local recurrence when treated by wide local excision21.
