Sequelae such as pain, sensory disturbances and psychological distress are well known after treatment for invasive breast cancer (IBC). Patients treated for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) receive a similar treatment as low-risk IBC. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to describe prevalence of postoperative pain, sensory disturbances, psychological distress and rehabilitation needs among Danish women with DCIS.

METHODS: A total of 574 women treated for DCIS in Denmark in 2013 and 2014 were enrolled and 473 (82%) completed a detailed questionnaire on demographic factors, pain, sensory disturbances, psychological aspects and rehabilitation needs 1-3 years after surgery.

RESULTS: Median age was 60 years. A total of 33% of patients reported any pain and 12% reported moderate to severe pain in the area of surgery. Younger age (<50 years OR 4.7 (95% CI: 1.6-14.0, p = 0.006)), aged 50 to 65 years OR 2.8 (95% CI: 1.1-7.0, p = 0.02) and anxiety and depression (measured by HADStotal >15 OR of 3.1 (95% CI: 1.5-6.3, p = 0.003)) were significantly associated with moderate to severe pain. Approximately one-third of the patients reported sensory disturbances such as pins and needles (32%), numbness (37%) and painful itch (30%) and 94 women (20%) reported anxiety ≥8, 26 (6%) depression and 51 (11%) reported distress.

CONCLUSIONS: This cross-sectional study showed that women treated for DCIS suffered from pain, sensory disturbances and psychological impairment and had unmet rehabilitation needs. Further research is warranted, specifically addressing rehabilitation after diagnosis and treatment of DCIS.
