Review
• DCIS should be tested for whether the cancer
is hormone-receptor positive or negative.
• Genetic counseling can help assess if you
have hereditary breast cancer.
• Most women with DCIS are treated with
breast-conserving therapy or a total
mastectomy.
• Lifestyle changes, hormone therapy, and
surgery help to prevent future breast cancer.
• Follow-up care includes breast exams by your
doctor and yourself as well as mammography.
