Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS, Stage 0)


Our interactive treatment navigation tool for newly diagnosed patients can help you explore the different types of treatments you may have.

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive breast cancer (stage 0). “In situ” means "in place." With DCIS, the abnormal cells have not left the milk ducts to invade nearby breast tissue. In this section of Understanding Breast Cancer, we describe the standard treatments for DCIS (including their benefits and risks).
