I was diagnosed with DCIS in the right breast and IDC in the left, had bilateral lumpectomies and bilateral radiation.  During radiation I found out that bilateral BC occurs in about 1% of the cases.  The last I checked BC.org didn't have a mechanism for me to fully profile my cancer.   Who is out there with the same experience?

Thanks.  Boo

Dx 3/18/2008, IDC, 1cm, Stage IB, Grade 3, 0/1 nodes, ER-/PR-, HER2+

I was diagnosed with BBC after biopsies on both breast in the same 6 o'clock location. I had twin tumors (IDC) 1.8cm on left and 1.6cm on the right. After my node biopsy 1 left node had 1.8 cm tumor. That's not the end of the story. After BMX it was discovered that I had a secondary 1.1cm tumor (IDC) on the right as well as DCIS, ILC and LCIS all present. On the left I also had DCIS. My BS was amazed by their findings after the BMX and we were all glad that we went with that procedure.
