    My Mother has Breast Cancer. She has Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Its not life threating but there is a less than 30% chance of a more Aggressive Cancer coming back in 5 to 10 years. I am really shaken up about this but know I have to be strong for her.

    I'm sorry. We, that is my family and I, have been going through similar circumstances with my Dad, so I know how traumatizing it can be. Be strong. And know you have my condolences and prayers.

    My father is currently fighting bladder cancer, all things considered the fight is easier now compared to ten years ago. Hope things go well for your mother.

    I'm sorry you and your mom and family have to go through such a thing. But I do hope everything works out in the best possible way, under such circumstances. Do take care. ::nods emphatically::

    Wait, wait, wait. There is LESS than a 30% chance of it coming back and you are worried? I am confused.

    They didn't catch my moms breast cancer early enough, she was supposed to die. But she didn't :( . That was about 10 years ago, she has gotten 2 more cancers in different places since then but since she has to go to the doctor monthly because of the breast cancer, they found it.

    I'm sorry to hear that. My mother also had this type of cancer and I'm proud to say she's in complete remission right now! If its caught early on, which you say it is, there should be a fairly good prognosis. More than likely, your mom will have a lumpectomy, followed by about 6 weeks of radiation treatment. Stay strong and you guys will be in my prayers.

    My mom is going through breast cancer as well, so I know what you are going through. you both will be in my prayers, and if you ever need someone to talk to, just pm me. Sometimes talking to someone who's going through, or been through the same ordeal helps.
