ConclusionThe presence of breast cancer does not significantly increase the likelihood for upgrade at a separate site of ipsilateral concurrent ADH above contemporary reported upgrade rates of ADH alone (10 –30%). When considering breast conservation for breast cancer, omitting excision of the site of ADH can be considered when low-risk features are present.

(European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer) A major study of women with DCIS - a breast condition that can become invasive cancer - has shown that surgery to remove the tissue followed by radiotherapy offers better protection compared to surgery alone. The study, presented at the 12th European Breast Cancer Conference, followed patients for up to 27 years. Although it shows that the benefit of radiotherapy and surgery over surgery alone persists, it also suggests that this benefit reduces over time.

ConclusionDetermining the specific immune response in each subtype could be helpful in estimating the possible behavior of the tumor cells in TME. It is important to realize that different frequencies of immune cells in BC environment likely determine the patients ’ prognosis and their survival in each subtype. Therefore, elucidation of the distinct immune players in TME would be helpful toward developing targeted therapies in each subtype.

Background: The cumulative incidence of invasive contralateral breast cancer (CBC) for patients with first invasive breast cancer (BC) is approximately 0.4% per year. Less is known about CBC risk in patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We aimed to assess the CBC risk in patients with first DCIS compared to those with invasive BC, taking age, screening period, and (neo) adjuvant systemic therapy into account.
