Breast cancer usually begins in the cells of the lobules (milk-producing glands) or the ducts that drain milk from the lobules to the nipple. It is the most common site of cancer in females and until recently was the leading cause of cancer deaths among females in the United States, a position.   Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast is an early, localized cluster of cancer cells that start in the milk passages (ducts) but have not penetrated the duct walls into the surrounding tissue. The term "in situ" refers to a tumor that has not spread beyond the place where it originally developed.
