Abstract: Previous studies of gene expression changes within pre‐malignant and benign lesions have not explored the potential significance of intralesional heterogeneity of marker expression. In our studies of DCIS, we find a broad range of expression of a given marker; heterogeneity is the rule rather than the exception. Heterogeneity may represent regional differences in cellular stress or perhaps different snapshots in time of stress responsiveness.
