Breast cancer – diagnosis and outcomes
Project Leader: Dr Gurdeep Mannu, Academic Clinical Fellow
Breast cancer has a substantial burden of disease worldwide. Ductal-carcinoma-in-situ of the breast (DCIS) is the most common type of non-invasive breast tumour. Since the advent of breast screening, the number of women diagnosed with early DCIS each year has been increasing so that it now accounts for approximately one-in-five tumours detected by the NHS screening programme. There is little reliable information on DCIS at present. The aim of Gurdeep’s research is to undertake epidemiological analyses of women with DCIS and to investigate the outcomes of women with DCIS.
