Critical illness insurance and high grade DCIS with microinvasion

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed with High grade DCIS with microinvasion in November 2016.  I underwent a Hadfields procedure and then a WLE followed by radiotherapy and now Tamoxifen.  The diagnosis was a complete shock to me.  Having now completed the radiotherapy i was reminded that i had critical illness insurance with the Prudential.  The cover excludes non invasive cancers in situ so i understand DCIS on its own would not be covered but is microinvasion invasive and therefore covered.  

Has anyone else experience of this?
