Micro-invasive DCIS that is her2+++
By clinical definition a true microinvasion is "IDC(Invasive Ductal Carcinoma) that is 1mm or less in its greatest dimension".
As requested a separate forum index for those of us who had true Micro-Invasive DCIS that was her2+++. Yes, we are a rare bunch but lately there have been a few more of us that joined BC.org and weren't able to connect with each other since there was no specific forum for us. We really don't belong in the Her2+++ forum since almost all of those who have been diagnosed with micro-invasive DCIS that were her2+++ and node negative have not received chemo/herceptin.
And since we are no longer stage 0 we don't really belong with the DCIS forum either.
I along with at least one other member who I regularly correspond with have been told that micro-invasive DCIS that is her2+++ is a separate category from those who have IDC that is her2+++. At this time there have not been many studies pertaining specifically to our diagnosis.
Having our own forum will definitely allow us to connect much easier. If you know of any members that fall in this category please encourage them to post post their stories and reach out to us. I am so happy the moderators did this for us.Thank you to the moderators!!!!
Edited: to add clinical definition of microinvasion.
