Re: DCIS... what are optimal clear margins

Hi feenix. I think they like a 5mm clear margin. I had a cavity shave as clear margins were only achieved on 2 sides. One of my margins was only 0.5 of a millimetre clear as it was to the skin so they couldnt achieve any more. Good luck with yours and i hope you get clear margins xx

DCIS... what are optimal clear margins

Ive had central WLE /SnB for idc.... histology showed large area of undetected dcis (intermediate). I’m having re excision to improve my dcis margins but what is the optimal size of margin for this?
