Ductal carcinoma in situ has been increased, according to the development of radiological procedures. Currently, it is subclassified by various morphological features; including their architecture, nuclear grade, or the presence or absence of comedonecrosis. Detection by cytology or core needle biopsy should be with caution, especially for low-grade tumors. Additionally, the concept of intraductal proliferative lesions has been proposed, together with intraductal hyperplasia and atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), but their true lineage should be clarified by further investigations.
