      I had invasive ductile carcinoma (IDC) stage 2B ER/PR+ and HER-2 NEG. I had a mastectomy, so there was no reason for radiation, but I had to have chemo. My oncologist told me that after the mastectomy and the chemo, I had a 15% chance of recurrence. So, I would assume with DCIS it is probably...

      I had invasive ductile carcinoma (IDC) stage 2B ER/PR+ and HER-2 NEG. I had a mastectomy, so there was no reason for radiation, but I had to have chemo. My oncologist told me that after the mastectomy and the chemo, I had a 15% chance of recurrence. So, I would assume with DCIS it is probably much less, because DCIS is not invasive. I am no doctor, but that is just my assumption from what my case is. You should probably ask your oncologist for statistics like that. Good luck to you and God bless!

      Robert,

      My brother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. He was having some pain in his breast, felt the area and found a lump. He tried to look at it in the mirror, rubbed the lump and had some discharge from his nipple. He was being seen by his doctor for something else the next week and mentioned it to his doctor. Doctor referred him for a mammogram, which confirmed a couple of suspicious lumps. He had an ultrasound, a biopsy which diagnosed infiltrating ductal carcinoma.... (JUST like mine!!!) He had a mastectomy, and a oncoDX test was made of the tissue. An oncoDX test is a predictor is the cancer was the type that would likely reoccur, thus recommending treatment with chemotherapy. The scale is from 0 to 100. 0 = no reoccurrence 100= will reoccur. His score was -0- so he was done with his treatment!!! Anyway.... even though breast cancer is relatively rare in men, it can still happen. The symptoms are the same. If you have a lump in your breast..... man-up and have it checked!!! This site or breastcancer.org. will have symptoms of breast cancer. Early detection is the key to getting rid of this sneaky disease. Hang in there... Take care, Sharon

      Amber, I hope that your doctor will explain this when you get your biopsy results. The numbers do not seem to add up. I know the waiting is so hard, but you really need the results to understand what is going on.

      Once again I say thank you. Everything came out all margins clear. Now I start 5 weeks of radiation treatment. Then hopefully that will be that.
