I have written to the people involved and they are from Oxford University.
They would like to hear from any ladies who have had a routine mammogram only then to discover they are diagnosed with DCIS.
They would like to hear about your experiences and feelings and how you were treated.
They come to interview you at your home.
They run a website to help with medical training and to help other ladies who have been diagnosed with DCIS or any form of BC, but at the moment the one they are most interested in is, DCIS.
I am hopefully going to be interviewed soon, so I will be willing to let anyone know how it goes, if you wish.
Did you find out if they are interested in women who get a mammogram because of a symptom and are then diagnosed with DCIS - or are they just wanting women who are in the screening programme?
It is worth contacting Suman for more details just to check this out.
Is this only open to women on the screening programme?
or can someone like me, who got diagnosed via a mammogram after presenting with a benign lump, be involved?
It sounds quite interesting.
