I recently had a biopsy due to new calcifications in my breast. Calcifications are nothing new for me but there were two new clusters one the mammogram. The biopsy showed DCIS. Because my husband is a PCP/administrator, I know all of the doctors in our hospital.... And the radiologist is a friend who did the procedure, she herself a brat cancer survivor of 9 years. She called with the results yesterday and said that it's practically a grade zero, and then she went in to say my options were.
For now, I'll be getting a breast MRI, and possibly more biopsies. At best, a lumpectomy and 6 weeks of chemo, or if it's widespread a mastectomy, possibly of both breasts.
My husband is so reassuring, but of course I'm scared. Really scared. He says that since right now, it's zero grade and NOT invasive, that's the best news regarding this kind of cancer. I trust what he says, but I'm so early into all of this.
Can someone reply to me with the same diagnosis. I can't bear any bad stories right now. I have panic and anxiety disorder and it's all I can do to keep it together today.
