Light micrograph of a section through a breast with lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). Despite the name, LCIS is not a type of breast cancer. Instead it means there are changes in the cells lining the lobules, or milk glands, that indicate a higher risk of developing breast cancer in the future. There are no symptoms associated with LCIS. Although most women with LCIS will not go on to develop breast cancer, they are more closely monitored than the general population with regular breast exams and mammograms. Magnification: x 150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
