Hi all. I was suprised to have my radiation oncologist recommend 6 wks. of radiation on my right side after having a double mastectomy. His reasoning is: it was SO close to the chest wall (0.7 mm)and so large (6cm) and grade 3, but no invasive on this side. Does anyone have experience with DCIS so close to the chest wall? What were you told? My entire fascia (lining over the chest muscle) was removed also, so any traces in that area should be long gone. Data on this proximity to the chest wall is just not available, that I have found, at least. This is such a gray area, to me.
