I have DCIS non invasive. Had 2 lumpectomies one to get clear margins and am now being treated with radiation.
Are you saying no surgery and just radiation? I suppose if the DCIS was small enough radiation may be effective? Mine was wide spread and surgeon was able to remove all of it from the 2 lumpectomies.

I too had a lumpectomy to be sure of clear margins, and then radiation treatment along with 5 years of taking tamoxifen.

Yes, I was wondering about radiation only and no surgery. I guess that probably is not a treatment option.
Thanks for your replies.
