Good news/bad news.

There are two types of ductile carcinoma in situ involved and neither looks invasive (that is, spread to other areas). Surgery, a mastectomy, is suggested and which we thought was best. It should take care of the problem, always the proviso that "you can't really tell until the pathologist reports." In the last case immunotherapy and possibly radiation would also be used.

A two step process: removal and then reconstruction. It's easier that way if there is a spread.

So...the uncertainty of treatment is over. Now comes the long slog.
