Diagnosis Story: Ductal Carcinoma
My name is Kim Fugate. I’m 43 & was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma on July 1, 2020. I had 2 spots- 1 was invasive & one was not. I had a lumpectomy on July 30, 2020, but they did not get it all. Apparently I had 2 more areas where another 2 areas tested positive for DSIS & they had spread. I go back in on August 18, 2020, to have a mastectomy.
Internal radiation therapy is the most common type of radiation used to treat breast cancer.
