Oh No Associated with Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Posted on April 11, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

I was a 38 DDD with dense breast tissue. I did not have a mamogram for 8 years and did periodic self exams however because my breasts were so dense and already very fibrous I didn't feel anything unusual. I also have Systemic Lupus and one day at work thought I was having a heart attack so I went to the emergency room. They ran an ekg and a cat scan beliving that I may have a blood clot due to the Lupus. When all the tests were complete the ER doctor came in and said we have good news you do not have any heart problems but we found a lump in your right breast that you need to get checked out right away. What did you just say? The beginning of Oh No!
