I was diagnosed in April of 2007 with DCIS in my right breast. When my surgeon did an exam of my left breast she found a lobular tumor which had invaded 3 lymph nodes. I had bilateral mastectomies, followed by chemo and radiation. The following year I had reconstruction surgery. Breast cancer runs in my family, my Mother was diagnosed in 2006, had a lumpectomy and radiation. Happily we are both healthy and encourage every woman to get annual mammograms. It can save your life.
