What is the definition or description of: intraductal carcinoma?

Pre-Cancer aka DCIS. Intraductal cancer, aka ductal-carcinoma-in-situ (dcis), is cancer that both arises and stays within the milk ducts of the breast; this is in contrast to invasive cancer, which has exited the ducts & into the supportive breast tissue. Therefore, by definition, dcis cannot exit outside the breast. Left untreated, this may progress to invasive cancer. Rx includes lump-x (+/-rt) vs. Mastectomy.
Noninvasive. Intraductal carcinoma is a noninvasive condition in which abnormal cells are found in the lining of a breast duct. The abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct to other tissues in the breast.

Are there any natural treatments for intraductal carcinoma?

Yes BUT. There is debate about stage 0 breast cancer and how diff it is now vs how we found it 10-20 yrs ago. Some say smaller, low grade lesions shouldn't be called "cancer". Hi grade dcis certainly has risk of invasion over time. There are complementary treatments offered. Fam history & risk reduction should be considered. Tough to find cohort of pts w/ grade 2-3 dcis for whom radiation not beneficial.
Yes. Natural treatments for cancer abound--unfortunately, none of them have been proven to work. The "natural" course for breast cancer leads to death.
