Frequently Asked Questions

Can HER2 be positive in DCIS?

Yes, DCIS can be either Her2-negative or positive. However, at this time the prognostic significance of Her2 status in DCIS is not well established and as a result it is currently  not recommended to test for Her2 status. HER2 testing is not used in the diagnosis and treatment of DCIS

The prognostic significance of Her2 status in DCIS is not well established and targeted therapy is not recommended. Treatment for Her2 Positive DCIS therefore is based on hormone receptor status and patient factors and is not influenced by Her2 status. 

DCIS is not tested for HER2 for two reasons: one, DCIS is more likely than invasive cancer to be HER2+ (we don’t know why); two, DCIS is not treated with HER2-targeted therapies, so testing DCIS for HER2 would not influence treatment choices.

Yes, most cases of DCIS are hormone receptor-positive. People with hormone receptor-positive DCIS may benefit from hormone therapy (tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor) [5,9,14-18].

The NCCN Panel recommends testing for ER status in order to determine the benefit of adjuvant endocrine therapy or risk reduction. This is in accordance with the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO)/CAP guidelines,4 which recommend that ER testing of newly diagnosed DCIS to determine potential benefit of endocrine therapies for breast cancer risk reduction and progesterone receptor (PR) testing be considered optional. (NCCN Guideline quote)
