Lymph node activity

Hi, so had a mastectomy yesterday. Difficult day, but also was meant to be the end of it all. I found out I had positive lymph nodes. I’m a bit confused as I thought dcis was local and contained. I will speak to the breast nurses later but wondered if anyone had any experience of this?

Hi, sorry to hear you had bad news yesterday.


I was the opposite, IDC with possible nodes and the DCIS was found by pathology. 

Unfortunately DCIS can spill from the cells and become invasive with the capacity to spread,  there is more info on the website and your breast care nurse should have more information. I also ordered booklets from the website.


However it’s better to know now so they can get the ongoing plan in place for the best outcome. 


Sending love and hugs
