Being at high risk for breast cancer
I had mammogram back in December that came back with having micro-
calsifications (clusters of 3 areas) came back benign, but they found 2 other
abnormal cells. I was diagnosed with having LCIS and FEA . Recently I
had a lumpectomy which came back with no other additional findings
which so relieving to me. My fathers sisters and their daughters have had
breast cancer and o e has passed away, but nothing on my mom's side.
I certainly do not want to take medications and to get checked out
every 4-6 months for my doctor to tell me I have to have more biopsy's
and more lumpectomy's. I have decided that being at high risk for breast
cancer to have a double masectomy. My family and most of my friends
are very supportive of my decision. Not only that my mother in law had
breast cancer and I worry about my daughters.
In any case I was just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation
and if you could be helpful.Thanks for taking the time to read my message.
