I am newly diagnosed with DCIS. The treatment (mastectomy, breast reconstruction, etc.) is so drastic for something that I'm told is pre-cancerous and good since it was caught so early. I had 5 cancerous of 6 biopsy sites (2 masses and 4 cluster microcalcifications). Both breast are affected. Can anyone identify with me and give me some hope. I'm so afraid right now. I can't imagine in anyway having my breast removed.
