Email received from Nicola Poplawski summarising a series of questions about calculating a Manchester Score that were emailed to Gareth Evans Please see answers below:
Q.1 How is DCIS managed?
Answer: DCIS is counted as breast cancer
Q.2 How is LCIS managed?
Answer: LCIS is not counted
Q.3 When you adjust for breast pathology in a proband, what histologies do you adjust?
Answers: DCIS and IDC are both adjusted for grade and (where available) receptors
Invasive lobular breast cancer is not adjusted for grade or receptors
Q.4 How do you count more than one primary breast cancer in the same proband?
Answer: Assign the proband the combined score for both breast cancers. i.e give a score for each breast cancer, pathology adjust both and then add together. But be cautious when the cancers are in the same field.
