Hello, i have been looking at this site and getting lots of information from it so thought i should join. I found a lump just before Easter and have had range of tests and small operations. I had a mammogram that only showed small calcium deposits, nor was anything shown on my first ultra sound. Two needle tests and a needle biopsey , followed by a lumpectomy finally produced my diagnosis. I had invasive ductal but also LCIS which i was told was an unusual mix. The tumour was only small and was hormone positive. I did not have a clear margin so opted for them to try and get that as i believe hormone thearpy will supress LCIS, and had a central node biopsey. Good news being lymph nodes were clear but they discovered another ductal tumour. Have been recommended a mx with immediate reconstruction. I would be suitable for the matrix reconstruction using pig skin. Please can i hear from anyone who has had this.
