after a mammogram, i had a biospy for calcifications. lab came back high grade focal dcis. so after a partial mastectmy, and lymph node removal. surgical pathology came back. benign lymphoid tissue. (common with dcis). the rest of the report read: biospy site with focal fat necrosis and early reparative alteration. negative for residual neoplastic disease. now my docter wants me to have 5 weeks of radiation. said that it was not uncommon to had removed all of the dcis with 1st biospy. but in my case i dont believe that was the case. because during my procedure, dr that done my biospy gave nurse tissue samples. to take to lab. came back and told docter. that he got 8 calcifications. after another mammogram. he showed me that i still had aprox 30 calcifications left. in that focal area. so whats the chance that out of 30 calcifications. he picked out all the cancer ones. i really dont want to have rads if i dont have to. so im hoping that a pathologist will see this and hopefully give me their opinion. or anyone else whos interested. sincerely:confused:
