I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in April 2009 and had a lumpectomy done. I read up on this type of cancer Ductal Carcinoma in Situ and although it was caught early, I still was not satisfied of the cancer not coming back. I opted to have a mastectomy done in May. The surgeon referred me to an Oncologist because the pathologist report stated hormone receptors and that I should be put on hormone treatment. The Oncologist says because I did the mastectomy that I do not need to be on the treatment. Please advise me.
