DCIS diagnosed with cancer family hx
Hi. I am 31 yrs old female with family history of cancer(mother died with breast cancer at age of 40).I did an MRI and then a 6 month follow-up MRI and then on the follow up the doctor suspected something and did a biopsy and I was diagnosed with DCIS with high grade cancer cells. I did a genetic test and result was positive for Braca 2 with uncertain significance classification. My doctor now ordered a sentinel node biopsy. I am bit confused, shouldn't my cancer be non-invasive? What is next?
