IS STAGE ‘0’ CANCER REALLY CANCER?
An example of carcinoma in situ is ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS,
which is considered an early form of breast cancer and occurs when abnormal cells form in the breast’s milk duct.
Stage ‘0’ breast cancer is typically thought of as non-invasive, but researchers have found that women diagnosed with stage 0, has an overall mortality rate was 3.3 per cent, whereas THE MORTALITY RATE FOR YOUNG BLACK WOMEN WAS 7.8 PER CENT. These are US figures but probably reflect a similar global pattern.
