About 2 yrs ago, I did a self exam, and discovered a discharge from my rt nipplle. I went to the Dr, and he opted to check it out in surgery. He corrected the discharge problem, and did a biopsy, The path report came back showing Ductile Carcinoma Insitu (a pre cancer condidion) However, the margins of the specimen were not clear. He went back in, and that report also came back with unclear margins. Rather than face repeated biopsies, I opted to have a mastectomy. The reeport came back on that and the pathologist said that was the only way we could have got it all. I just thank the Lord for the early discovery, and continue to have regular mamograms to make sure that the left breast is healthy.
