Women with DCIS at lowest risk of recurrence if they are post-menopausal or ER+
(ECCO-the European CanCer Organisation) Patients with an early form of breast cancer are less likely to suffer a recurrence if they are post-menopausal or if their tumour is oestrogen receptor positive, according to research presented at the 11th European Breast Cancer Conference.

Radioactive Seed Localization or Wire-guided Localization of Nonpalpable Invasive and In Situ Breast Cancer: A Randomized, Multicenter, Open-label Trial
This research article has led to a Practice Changing Update in DynaMed Plus. It concludes that radioactive seed localization may have similar positive margin but higher successful placement rates compared to wire localization in women having breast-conserving surgery for nonpalpable invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

POINT: Should Radiation Therapy After Surgery for Ductal Carcinoma In Situ Be Standard Practice?
At this time RT following BCS remains the standard of care for most patients. Current tools, including prognostic scores and tumor genetics, have failed to identify a cohort for whom RT confers no benefit with respect to invasive recurrences. (Source: CancerNetwork)

COUNTERPOINT: Should Radiation Therapy After Surgery for Ductal Carcinoma In Situ Be Standard Practice?
To universally recommend breast irradiation for all women after excision of DCIS lesions ignores information now available to us that can spare the majority of women with DCIS the downsides of RT, but be applied in the treatment of DCIS patients at greater risk for invasive disease.
