DCIS & pregnancy?
Hi. New here and just diagnosed about 2 weeks ago with DCIS in left breast, 5cm, stage 2 with comedonecrosis. I have been trying to have a baby for over 3 years (just turned 40 this year) and was pursuing IVF before my diagnosis. It appears that my IVF treatments have been fueling the DCIS (estrogen positive at 81%, progesterone 5%). I have one healthy embryo from the IVF treatment. I am currently working on a plan with my surgeon and trying to determine how to best treat the DCIS and then determine if I can pursue a frozen embryo transfer for my one embryo. I am having difficulty finding information and how others may have approached this dilemma. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas or suggestions. I am currently planning to treat the DCIS surgically because of risk factors (mom had ovarian cancer, paternal grandmother and aunt both had breast cancer, paternal uncle has prostate cancer). Waiting on genetic testing results. Thank you for any information.
