All women who have been diagnosed with LCIS should have ongoing surveillance due to the increased risk of subsequent invasive breast cancer. Subject to specialist clinical judgement (e.g. considering the age of the woman), surveillance includes annual clinical examination and appropriate bilateral imaging. The type of imaging used in surveillance will depend on the woman’s characteristics and how their LCIS was managed.
