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?

bhr813 --- have you had an MRI yet? I'm confused when you say the doctor has not been able to find a source yet. LCIS often stands alone in the breast -- there is no source. It is a risk because it can turn into breast cancer. Maybe this is different since yours is in your lymph node.
