Lobular Carcinoma In Situ Lcis Symptoms
Viral insertion: DCIS is the earliest phase of transformation to malignancy developing in the ductal system before invasion into parenchyma has occurred. It is defined on mammo by clustered microcalcification. In general the long terminal repeat of the MMTV viral genome enters the ductal cell to initiate transformation. with time the cells become aggressive and invade basement membrane helped by the EBV virus ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

It may occur in the nose and/or sinuses or in the urinary tract (bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra).. With dysplasia and in-situ squamous Ca this would probably be a premalignant sinus carcinoma bordering on squamous cell Ca needing resection. ...Read more

Cis will eventually turn into one. But, because we don't live forever, cis might not turn into a malignancy during one's lifetime anyway. Pathologists can usually, but not always, tell the difference by microscopic cell exam. ...Read more

Don't delay your biopsy. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Depends on where this diagnosis was made. Is a non-invasive disease. Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast is treated with lumpectomy and sometimes hormone therapy & radiation. Lobular carcinoma in situ of breast is treated as a benign pre-cancerous lesion. Cancer in situ of the colon treated as an early cancer with surgery. Gynecologist can answer this ...Read more
