Prior to having this diagnosis, I had opted for bilateral mastectomies (prophylactic) due to high risk familial/and positive brca2 gene. The procedure I was to have was skin sparing with immediate reconstruction(saline expanders). During the procedure, DCIS was found in the right breast 7cm. No nodes were removed. The specimen had clear margins.
