Hi JuliMarie,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER. DCIS is a serious thing, and your doctors are working to ensure your survival from this condition, and proper containment of it to avoid future complications. If you are uncertain about treatment, talk with your doctors and please tell them about your concerns. Make sure you are satisfied with the answers. It's normal to be scared when facing something like this. I can only imagine what it must be like. If you are not receiving the level of care you would like, then you can go to a different doctor you would be more comfortable with. It is up to you to advocate for your health, and work with the doctors to make sure you get the best treatment possible.
What do you think about that?
Here are some articles about treating DCIS that may provide some insight and help you to advocate for yourself:
EmpowHER ASK: DCIS Treatment, Hormone Therapy, EmpowHER: DCIS Advocacy Sheet, and EmpowHER: DCIS Information and Articles.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
