Praying for you. I was diagnosed with DCIS 3 yrs. ago but was Stag I and Sentinel Node biopsy negative. Only had it in right breast. Never worried about breast cancer because it did not seem to run in my family. At the time I was diagnosed, I felt great and had lost weight by exercising and dieting. Very surprised at the diagnosis given to me after a mammogram. Have a upcoming mammogram to left side in Oct. and always scared of results.

Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): Right breast DCIS in Stage 0. Had mastectomy and Sentinel node biopsy which was negative. Very fortunate. This was detected after a Mammogram. I have had my yearly Mammogram on left and was okay. I think cancer is the scariest word you can hear. I never worried about breast cancer and when it was discovered I felt good. The cells had not broke out of the duct so I was blessed it was caught in time.
