Patient discussion about cm 3
Q. Hi all. I was diagnosed with DCIS in April. Had a lumpectomy about 3 cm and it was removed. Am I cured fully? Hi all. I was diagnosed with DCIS in April. Had a lumpectomy about 3 cm and it was removed. I then had 28 radiation and 4 boosters. I went to the cancer center for my checkup and the doctor said nothing to worry. They didn’t advice me further follow up and I am normal for the past 6 months and not even taking tamoxifen. I am quite normal like others. Am I cured fully?
A. Hey nothing to worry!! Early diagnosis is half cured. The same thing applies to your case. With early diagnosis and treatment, the doctors should have removed the cancer parts with the surgery. Based on the report they have given you radiation and other meds. If you be estrogen +ve then they would have given you it as a preventive. By the way if you have any doubts better approach your doctor and have your checkup done as a precautionary measure.More discussions about cm 3
