In brief: Lobular Carcinoma ..
...In situ. Lcis is typically found incidentally at the time of a breast biopsy.
This is a bit of a misnomer since this is not a pre-cancerous condition, but rather a marker for an increased risk of breast cancer (app. 25% lifetime risk). Tamoxifen or Raloxifene may be given under these circumstances to reduce the risk of cancer development.
