lobular carcinoma in situ

Pronunciation: (LAH-byoo-ler KAR-sih-NOH-muh in SY-too)

A condition in which abnormal cells are found in the lobules of the breast. This condition seldom becomes invasive cancer. However, having lobular carcinoma in situ in one breast increases the risk of developing breast cancer in either breast. Also called LCIS.
