Lobular carcinoma in situ

Also known as: LCIS
Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) is a type of noninvasive breast cancer that is confined to the cells lining the very end of the milk ducts (lobules) in the breast. LCIS has some of the characteristics of cancer cells but does not invade surrounding breast tissue or other structures.
At Providence, achieving optimal breast health and providing world-class treatment for breast cancer are equal priorities in our continuing goal to improve women’s health. Providence Breast Centers offer comprehensive access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging techniques to ensure accurate and timely diagnoses.
