Incidence rates of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) have been rising, but little is known about which patients will develop invasive breast cancer or what types of tumors these patients may develop.METHODS
By using Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data, the authors evaluated how types of invasive breast cancers diagnosed among 37,692 DCIS and 4490 LCIS patients differed and how clinical characteristics influenced subsequent breast cancer risk.RESULTSAmong DCIS patients, incidence rates of ipsilateral and contralateral invasive breast cancer were 5.4/1000 person-years and 4.5/1000 person-years, respectively; and among LCIS patients, incidence rates were 7.3/1000 person-years and 5.2/1000 person-years, respectively. LCIS patients were 5.3-fold more likely than DCIS patients to develop invasive lobular carcinomas. Women whose DCIS had comedo histologic features or was poorly differentiated had 1.4-fold and 2.0-fold elevations in ipsilateral invasive breast cancer risk. Furthermore, among DCIS patients, 20-49 year-olds and black women and Hispanic white women had 1.6, 2.7, and 2.3-fold elevated risks of Stage III/IV breast cancer compared with 50-59 year-olds and non-Hispanic whites, respectively.CONCLUSIONS
Screening young DCIS patients more frequently and improving the follow-up care of blacks and Hispanic whites with DCIS may reduce their risk of advanced-stage breast cancer. In addition, LCIS may be a precursor rather than just an ambiguous risk factor for invasive breast cancer, and, therefore, localized treatment for LCIS may be warranted. Given that incidence rates of DCIS and LCIS have been rising, investigations of these tumors should be continued to better understand their etiology and appropriate clinical management.

    ABSTRACT: Objectives: To audit the outcomes of patients with non-pleomorphic lobular in situ neoplasia (LISN) of the breast and clarify the role of vacuum-assisted biopsy (VAB), surgical biopsy and conservative management for this condition. Materials and method: A single-centre retrospective review of hospital databases covering a 14-year period was performed. Patients with LISN as the most pertinent diagnosis on core needle biopsy (CNB), vacuum-assisted biopsy (VABs) or surgical biopsy were identified. The radiological features, histopathological findings and outcome of subsequent annual mammography were recorded. Results: Between 1998 and 2012 there were 70 patients with LISN as the most pertinent diagnosis at CNB, VAB or surgery. 52 underwent VAB, typically 18 11-gauge samples. The pathology was upgraded from the preceding 14-gauge CNB in 7 cases. Of 11 patients who underwent surgery after VAB, one (who had undergone a low tissue yield VAB) was upgraded. There were no new breast cancers during a mean annual mammographic follow-up period of 53 months in 40 patients who had VAB with complete radiological-histopathological concordance. Conclusion: Provided there is adequate tissue sampling and radiological-pathological concordance, VAB is a safe alternative to open biopsy in the management of non-pleomorphic LISN.

    ABSTRACT: Context.-Lobular neoplasia encompasses a spectrum of disease, including atypical lobular hyperplasia and lobular carcinoma in situ. Although classic forms of lobular neoplasia are predominantly heralded as a risk marker, the pleomorphic form of lobular carcinoma in situ is generally regarded as a more aggressive subtype and a possible cancer precursor, and thus is treated in a manner more similar to ductal carcinoma in situ than classic forms of lobular neoplasia. Objective.-To focus on the morphologic spectrum of lobular neoplasia as highlighted by 3 cases and current management recommendations. Areas of diagnostic challenge and controversy are addressed. Data Sources.-A review of the pertinent published literature and current national guidelines was conducted. Conclusions.-Correct classification of classic lobular neoplasia and pleomorphic lobular carcinoma in situ is critical because of differences in clinical management, with current treatment strategies focused on risk reduction for patients with classic lobular neoplasia and eradication of the lesion for those with pleomorphic lobular carcinoma in situ.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of race/ethnicity on second breast tumors among women with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). We identified 102,489 women diagnosed with primary DCIS between 1988 and 2009 from the 18 NCI-SEER Registries. Cox proportional hazard regression was used to estimate race/ethnicity-associated relative risks (RRs) and their 95 % confidence intervals (CI) of ipsilateral breast tumors (IBT; defined as DCIS or invasive carcinoma in the ipsilateral breast) and contralateral breast tumors (CBT; defined as DCIS or invasive carcinoma in the contralateral breast). Overall, 2,925 women had IBT and 3,723 had CBT. Compared with white women, black (RR 1.46; 95 % CI 1.29–1.65), and Hispanic (RR 1.18; 95 % CI 1.03–1.36) women had higher IBT risk, which was similar for invasive IBT and ipsilateral DCIS. A significant increase in IBT risk among black women persisted, regardless of age at diagnosis, treatment, tumor grade, tumor size, and histology. The CBT risk was significantly increased among black (RR 1.21; 95 % CI 1.08–1.36) and Asian/PI (RR 1.16; 95 % CI 1.02–1.31) women compared with white women. The association was stronger for invasive CBT among black women and for contralateral DCIS among Asian/PI women (P heterogeneity < 0.0001). The black race-associated CBT risk was more pronounced among women ≥50 years at diagnosis and those with comedo DCIS; in contrast, a significant increase in risk among Asian/PI women was restricted to those <50 years and those with noncomedo DCIS. Racial/ethnic differences in risks of second breast tumors after DCIS could not be explained by pathologic features and treatment.
