    Hello, Wattsamanto. I, too, had stage 0 breast cancer. My gynecologist , who had ordered my regular mamogram referred me to a surgeon. (I asked her for help oin selecting one.) the surgeon then went over my options (lumpectomy or mastectomy) which will be a personal choice. I had read as much as I could on stage 0 (during that time was the WORST, fear of the unknown!) . Everybody's case is a little bit different, but after I had made my decision, with the help of the surgeon and my family, I was much more at peace, I received my diagnosis on August 7 and had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction on September 13 .of 2012. I am scheduled to to have my tissue expanders removed and replaced with permanent implants on January 30.
