Just wondering who has  had DCIS high grade if so what treatment did you have and once removed did it return.

Im 58 go in on the 18th May for a hook wire excision to hopefully remove then it’s the waiting game on pathology results.

    I had high grade extensive DCIS in 2014 and had an immediate mastectomy.  No, it has not returned to the chest or come visiting the breast on the other side.

    In 2011 I had a single mastectomy..no further treatment ..nodes all clear
    In 2016 diagonised with mets to lungs...had a CT for liver pain no problem with liver but ltumor in lung
    Hormone positive at biopsy so treatment so far has been anti hormone drugs 
    Dcis is never to be underestimated
    Be vigilant with checkups

    All the best 
    Bright in hope

    @Pommy8 I have been diagnosed with intermediate to high grade DCIS on 8 April. Due to the size of calcification, I need to have a double mastectomy. My surgery is next week and then, it’s waiting for the results. How’s your results?
