Anyone wiht Nipple Discharge after NSM told possible DCIS cells
Hi everyone I haven't posted for quite a while but I still check out almost daily all the amazing info that is available on this fantastic site. I had a NSM 10 months ago with no sign of cancer, we thought we were dealing with a large mass showing as a papilloma but after the op the pathology came back showing 11cm of DCIS and 1.2cm of Invasive Muscinous Carcinoma. Long story but the surgeon not believing it to be cancer hadn't preformed the SNB at the time (had it done through the skin a week later) and didn't core the inside of the nipple. I had close margins but I was still told that chemo wasn't necessary (node negative) radiation wasn't needed and tamoxifen wasn't going to benefit greatly but it was entirely up to me. I chose not to take tamoxifen but have been constantly worried about this decision. I have spoken to a top oncologist another specialist and now have an appointment with a radiation oncologist for his opinion. My problem now is that I have had a slight discharge from the nipple of the nipple sparing side. I have had a dot of a yellow discharge on my bra occasionally and when I saw the BS yesterday he squeezed the nipple a little and a dark red bloody discharge came out and it has been sent off for testing for cancer cells. I get these results on Friday. I know that I may be loosing the nipple now due to this but I was just wandering if there was anyone out there that has had this happen and needed to have their nipple removed months after having NS????
Edited to add that I will be giving Tamoxifen a go once I know what I'm dealing with here.
