Recent LCIS Dx

Options

Hi all. Turned 40 a few months ago and went for my first screening mammo shortly after. Had a R sided diagnostic mammo and bilateral breast ultrasound and then was then referred for a right sided stereotactic biopsy which showed LCIS. No family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Still processing all the emotions and have my initial consultation with a breast surgeon next week. No questions to ask the group but just wanted to connect with others who know what this process is like.
