Lobular Carcinoma Insitu

  • Chemoprevention:
    • With a selective estrogen receptor modulator:
      • Such as tamoxifen:
        • Substantially reduces the risk of developing invasive breast cancer in patients with lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) and should be offered
  • Negative margins are generally not required for classic LCIS:
    • Whereas they are recommended for:
      • Pleomorphic LCIS
  • The patient’s future risk of developing breast cancer is:
    • Approximately 1% annually
  • Bilateral prophylactic mastectomy:
    • Is generally considered to be more invasive than is required in this setting and, although it could be discussed as an option, should not be routinely recommended
