In this video from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), breast cancer surgeon Stephen Edge, MD, Chair of Breast and Soft Tissue Surgery at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, explains how ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is different from invasive breast cancer and why women with ductal carcinoma in situ usually do not get chemotherapy. The NCCN is a not-for-profit alliance of 21 leading cancer centers—including Roswell Park Cancer Institute—dedicated to improving care for cancer patients. You can find more information on breast cancer in the NCCN Guidelines for Patients with Breast Cancer, available at www.NCCN.com. These guidelines, part of the NCCN Guidelines for Patients series, discuss most types of breast cancer along with treatment options.
