Lobular Carcinoma in Situ - Treatments

​Management of Lobular Carcinoma in Situ includes:

  • Close observation e.g. clinical breast examinations, annual mammograms or MRI of the breasts.
  • Chemoprevention, which is taking medication to reduce the risk of cancer. These drugs may include Tamoxifen or Raloxifene for 5 years.
  • Surgery, where preventive or prophylactic mastectomy may be considered if there is a high risk based on a strong family history of breast cancer or if there is a BRCA gene mutation.
