Multicentricity of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ
The increasing treatment of breast cancer with breast-conserving surgery has reopened the discussion of multicentricity in breast cancer. To help answer this question we made a careful histological examination of 192 breasts with either invasive cancer or ductular carcinoma in situ (CDIS) using the radial technique of whole-organ sectioning . The frequency of multicentricity was estimated in 104 invasive breast cancers, 20 microinvasive cancers and 68 cases of CDIS.
