Does DCIS breast cancer need radiation treatment?

   Credit for bringing this topic to mind goes to Nancy F. Smith at More Magazine for her article A Breast Cancer You May Not Need to Treat in the August 2011 issue.

The aberrant cells are confined to the milk ducts in the breast tissue, and because of its minimal potential for invasiveness it is called stage 0 on the breast cancer scale.
