Dr. Steven Shak>>> Steven Shak, MD: The Oncotype DX DCIS score will tell you about the underlying
biology of DCIS tumor that was removed at the time of diagnosis. The score ranges from
0-100 and based on prior studies, we know that if you have a low DCIS score, which is
the cased many many many times that surgery alone is the appropriate treatment for you.

this individual information can inform you and give you confidence that you are making
the right plan to get a great outcome for the future.
