  1. Hello. My wife recently had a lumpectomy to remove a noninvasive DCIS. Now the doctor, who is a thoracic surgeon, wants to re-excise the area due to positive margins and follow up with radiation and tamoxifen. I and my wife really have doubts as to whether these are wise to do. Our mindset is be vigilant about it and monitor closely. Has anyone else had a similar experience that you could share?

    Thank you.
