Preoperative Delays in the Treatment of DCIS and the Associated Incidence of Invasive Breast Cancer
Ann Surg Oncol (2019) In process.
BACKGROUND: Although treatment delays have been associated with survival impairment for invasive breast cancer, this has not been thoroughly investigated for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). With trials underway to assess whether DCIS can remain unresected, this study was performed to determine whether longer times to surgery are associated with survival impairment or increased invasion. METHODS: A population-based study of prospectively collected national data derived from women with a clinical diagnosis of DCIS between 2004 and 2014 was conducted using the National Cancer Database.
