      That is strange to hear. I am a 17 months survivor of DCIS. Before I was diagnosed I’ve never heard of stage zero. After doing research and speaking to several doctors, I got the same response. Treatment is needed. The whole cancer process is confusing. Trust your physician opinion

      There are trials going on right now addressing this. DCIS stage 0 is being closely watched to see if there is a need for surgery. There is no info how many actually become cancer now.

      Beverly60, oncologists consider more symptoms than we know when they decide how to treat our cancers. If not, we could make all the decisions without them. One obvious thing is the size of the tumor.

      We should all be glad they are constantly trying to improve our treatments, and that they wouldn't stop treating us without a lot of research.

    Hello. I would say welcome, but that kind sounds inane....
    I've had treatment and Mastectomy for DCIS. Two rounds of Chemo, but no Radiation.
    How are you doing?
