Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Score® results

What to expect

How likely are you to benefit from radiation therapy?

This short video can help you prepare for your appointment with your doctor to review your DCIS Score® results.

 

Your results will be available to your doctor about 2 weeks after your tumor sample arrives at the Exact Sciences lab.* The results provide a score between 0 and 100 that says how likely your cancer is to return in the next 10 years and how much radiation therapy may help you .

A low DCIS Score result means that there is a lower risk of your cancer returning, so you would have a smaller absolute benefit from radiation therapy

A high DCIS Score result means that there is a higher risk of your cancer returning, so you would have a greater absolute benefit from radiation therapy

It is important to understand that a low DCIS Score result does not mean that there is no chance that your breast cancer will return. And a high DCIS Score result does not mean that your breast cancer will definitely return. So, your treatment decisions still depend on your unique situation and personal preferences.
