Ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS, is an early stage of breast cancer where the cancer is confined in the ducts, explains Dr. Harness. In this video Dr. Harness explains the different types of DCIS and the treatment options available.
This is my gorgeous wife talking about her delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of breast cancer. She looks a little puffy because she is on steroids and going through chemotherapy. I still think she's the most beautiful girl I've ever laid eyes upon. She will be missed. The world lost a great person
I love my mom. right there by my side on my first chemo of 2013. Always with me. This is my first treatment of my third time session of chemo. First was in March-june 2011...then nov 2012 and now Jan 2013 to July 2013
Due to the side effects of the crappy chemo I was taking in November, it wasn't suppose to make my hair fall out...but it did unfortunately. It's just hair I had my partner shave my head to ensure that I don't have it continually fall in my food, sink, floor, and stick to my clothes. Feels good not to worry about it. I start a new chemo protocol in 3 days...my hair is gonna fall out anyways. I'll be shiny head in about 2 weeks. Time to order more new wigs.....
