Latest DCIS & Breast Cancer News and Research

Since DCIS (and breast cancer) treatment is a hotbed of controversy, it is critical to keep up with the latest research and thinking. This page is a collaborative effort….news changes daily and I need help to keep us all up to date.

If DCIS or breast cancer is in the news and I find it, I’ll post a link to any newspaper, magazine, video, current studies or medical journal article for you to read.  If you find anything, please comment and I’ll add it.  This blog needs to be a group effort to get the best information out to our breast cancer sisters (and brothers) and their caregivers!
