Provides a summary on Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) derived from the State and Territory cancer registries and the BreastScreen Australia Program. The data highlight the changing DCIS patterns with the introduction of mammography in Australia. This information is useful to health professionals, women with DCIS, policy makers and planners.
There were almost 1,200 women with a diagnosis of DCIS in Australia in 1998
Approximately 58% of DCIS diagnosed in 1998 were diagnosed by the BreastScreen Australia Program
The number of women being diagnosed with DCIS in Australia increased by two-thirds in the period 1993 to 1998
More than half of the women diagnosed with DCIS were between 50 and 69 years of age
DCIS is a disease that involves changes in the cells in the lining of the ducts of the breast. Although the changes are like those seen in breast cancer, DCIS has not spread beyond the ducts. If left untreated, it may increase the chances that a woman will develop an invasive breast cancer. Before the introduction of nationwide mammographic screening in Australia in 1991, DCIS was rarely found. Since then mammography has increased the detection of DCIS. This report presents statistics for the first time on DCIS diagnoses in women in Australia and covers the period from 1993 to 1998.
