Conservation treatment or mastectomy for DCIS?

e they show that the less aggressive option of a lumpectomy can be chosen in the knowledge that it does not affect a woman's overall chances of survival.

"As shown by other clinical trials comparing mastectomy to breast conservation therapy, mastectomy is associated with the lowest risk of local recurrence but provides no survival advantage when compared to breast conservation therapy. Our experience with DCIS supports this conclusion. We agree that mastectomy is the most complete treatment for DCIS in terms of minimizing the risk of local recurrence, but mastectomy is an undesirable option for many women who are willing to accept a higher risk of local recurrence as long as it does not place them at a higher risk of death," said Prof Holmes.
