One in five women diagnosed with breast cancer will be told she has DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ. This Sunday, on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Tari King, chief of breast surgery at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center and the associate division chief for breast surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, about what DCIS is and how it differs from other kinds of breast cancer.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show this Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
