Abstract

An unforeseen consequence of the introduction of mammographic breast screening has been the marked increase in the number of women diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) [1,2]. In 2009–2010, 2830 women were diagnosed with in situ carcinoma through the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP) [3]. Screen-detected DCIS now accounts for 20% of ‘cancers’ identified through breast screening. However, the intent of breast screening programmes was to detect early invasive cancer, not to identify DCIS.
