  • These results have demonstrated that there are important differences in the rate of local recurrence based on the pathologic characteristics of the primary tumor for women with ductal carcinoma in situ treated with breast-conserving surgery and definitive irradiation. However, the differences in local recurrence have not been associated with differences in survival or freedom from distant metastases. Careful follow-up for patients at increased risk for local recurrence is warranted because of the potential ability to salvage patients with local recurrence.
