I was diagnosed DCIS four years ago and had mastectomy. Recently the cancer reoccurred. I am not confident and confused with the Proposed treatment plan and would like to get a second opinion. Just wonderif any one has a good recommendation for medical oncologist in NJ area? Please help! Much appreciated. Thank you.

Snow - I don't know how to do this, but if you could put NJ in your topic line that might get more responses.

I can't help with MO recommendations since I'm in Canada.

Since this is a recurrence, I assume that it's in the same breast. That may limit your options, since rads can only be done once to a single location (don't know if you had rads previously). Since you posted in the DCIS forum I'm assuming it's DCIS again... is that correct? What treatment did you have with your first diagnosis? And what is being suggested this time?
