Oh No Associated with Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Posted on July 6, 2012 View this journey (17 Experiences)

When I received the phone call I got very upset. My thought was just to have a masectomy and be done with it. I did not want to deal with going through another lumpectomy only to be told that the margins were still not clear. I went in to see the surgeon the next morning to discuss this. She went over the biopsy with me and felt there was no cancer in the front of the breast and that we should be able to clear the margins this time and get on with the radiation treatments.
