The surgeon found my LCIS during lumpectomy for ILC. My LCIS did not show up on mammogram, ultrasound or MRI. Just wondering if you just have LCIS how was it discovered?

I have sclerosing adenosis with calcifications which can look like cancer on a mammogram. Found it when they biopsied that suspicious looking area. Actually they found ALH, suspicious for LCIS. LCIS confirmed on surgical biopsy

LCIS, extensive sclerosing adenosis, TAH/BSO & partial omentectomy for mucinous borderline ovarian tumor.

Throw in some ADH on the biopsy and my situation is identical to MelissaDallas's.

LCIS is usually found in biopsies, not imaging, so your situation is typical Alabama. Hope you continue to do well.

Well, that's not good since I had the lumpectomy. Guess it's a risk the lumpectomy group has to take. My gene testing was negative. I have a maternal aunt and another cousin who had breast cancer. Wonder if LCIS is hereditary -- bet it is.
