Survivor

I have talked to my surgeon and nurses and it has come to my knowledge that actually do have cancer, but please don’t think of this as bad, I am actually ok with this bc I know what to expect and it’s the best cancer to have if you have to have cancer.
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) (stage 0)is a non-invasive breast cancer. In DCIS, the abnormal cells are contained in the milk ducts. It is called “in situ” (which means “in place”) because the cells have not left the milk ducts to invade nearby breast tissue. DCIS is also called intraductal (within the milk ducts) carcinoma. You may also hear the terms “pre-invasive” or “pre-cancerous” to describe DCIS.

DCIS is non-invasive, but without treatment, the abnormal cells could turn into invasive cancer over time. Left untreated, about 20 to 30 percent of low grade DCIS will progress to invasive breast cancer

So I am changing my title to previvor to SURVIVOR!!
