The math of invasive breast cancer risk for LCIS

But I am still wondering, how one set of facts regarding LCIS, based on National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) research, can provide a risk of invasive breast cancer of 50%, 60%, 70% over a lifetime (when 2%/year is given) and other reputable sites like American Cancer Society state 20% to maybe 35% lifetime risk? Without accurate information, we cannot make decisions. And 20% compared to 70% is a huge discrepancy.

Completely agree. My alh pathology was an accidental finding at age 50. How do I know this hasn’t been there for 15 years. How can I get a 20 percent chance over 5-15 years of being discovered. Very unsettling
