I was just diagnosed with LCIS and I know I should be relieved but now I feel like a time bomb. I forgot to ask any questions because I just wasn't prepared. Wish I had known the results before my follow up appt so I could have made a list. They said it will be recommended that I get mammo/ultrasound screenings every 6 months as well as clinical breast exam twice a year as well. At my appt in 2 weeks to check on my biopsy incision a final time she said they will also discuss that some people see an oncologist to discuss medications to lower risk of getting B. She wasn't pushing this and I have read some about it and think I would decline.

That said, what questions should I be asking? Should I be asking for an MRI?
