Diagnosis

I was diagnosed with DCIS in my left breast during my regular annual breast screen and review in September 2008. I had been having annual reviews at a breast clinic as my sister died of breast cancer at 35 years of age and I had a number of problems with my breast. The cancer was detected in the ultra sound scan and confirmed through a biopsy. The cancerous cells were located just behind my nipple.
