I was diagnosed with a DCIS that proved to be 1.5 cm, hormone receptive, and was excised cleanly with the closest margin being 6 mm. I have appointments for a consult with a medical oncologist to discuss Tamoxifen and hormone therapy. I'm feeling pressured to have radiation, too, and don't relish having to leave my home for five days a week, for a six week treatment. I also have badly scarred lungs, and am super apprehensive about the possibility of more scarring.
