I went in for my yearly mamm and after it was over I thought well I've done my duty for another year only to get a letter a few days later stating that I had an abnormal mamm and it would require more testing. Had a biopsy and was diagnosed with DCIS on May 15, my daughter's birthday. Since then my life has been a blur. Surgery, doctors appts and now will begin radiation on June 29 for 6 weeks. My question is after the treatments, is there such a thing as cancer free or will the gene still be there laying dormant. This whole process has been very scary but I'm trying very hard to be positive. I have read many comments and I'm glad to have found this site.
