Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): I started out only needing a lumpectomy but cancer was found in the margin and then another surgery for partial mastectomy and more cancer found. Decided I did not want to chase it any more and had a double mastectomy.
Good thing I did. Both breasts had DCIS. I always had large breasts and feel so free and healthy without my breasts. No reconstructive surgery for me.
