One of the goals of treatment for DCIS and early-stage breast cancer — which is stage I, II, or stage III cancer — is to stop the cancer from coming back, called recurrence by doctors. Dr. Brian Wojciechowski joined us to talk about recurrence risk and how it’s estimated.

Listen to the episode to hear Dr. Wojciechowski discuss:

  • the factors used to determine each breast cancer’s risk of recurrence

  • the steps a person can take to help keep the risk of recurrence as low as it can be

  • how tests called tumor genomic assays can help estimate the risk of recurrence
