DCIS

Hi I am Hayley and new today in here for a year I have been back and forth with breast health issues since being thrown into surgical menopause .
First was always told it was down to hormone changes and breast pain ,then was diagnosed with a small fibrodemona in my left Breast located in lower part of the Breast which is still there.

Early this spring I went back again to my Breast clinic before a routine check up as I had started with presenting swelling on the right and a very noticable lump on my right nipple.

Again At first It got passed off as all down to menopause Hormone changes,didn't even do a scan ,I still could not get my head around with all changes I had already made, not on hrt why things were not settling down.

Couple of weeks ago I went back again and dug my heals in .
And On further testing which they seemed shocked at as the results came back With DCIS


These cells there abnormal but non invasive ...(so far) called Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) ( yes i had to copy that I cant even prounce it )

DCIS like they have said to is an early form of non invasive primary breast cancer, sometimes called pre-invasive cancer.

The cancer cells or more classed as abnormal cells (to try and not scare you I think ) and start inside the milk ducts.

But If it’s not treated, they may develop the ability to spread and become invasive breast cancer .

So my heads bit all over place today .They re tested my left Breast yesterday ( the first biopsy I had on that one was 7 month ago)
Just to double check .
They are really quick with getting the results back at least .

Waiting game ( few days not long one) now then go from there with whats next xxx
