DCIS & COVID-19: How to Decrease Anxiety

Women recently diagnosed with DCIS can do more than just wait.

A test is available NOW to learn if the DCIS cells from a biopsy are “low-risk” or “elevated risk.”

Why wait and do nothing when you can do something to decrease anxiety NOW! 

Below is information posted by PreludeDx, the company that tests YOUR DCIS BIOLOGY:

  1. In recent guidelines for your physicians, DCIS has been categorized as non-urgent or a lower priority for surgery or radiation.
  2. You may have already been told that your treatment has been postponed.
  3. Use this time to gather more information about the biology of your specific DCIS tumor – Not all DCIS is the same
  4. There is a test that lets you know your risk of DCIS returning or developing into invasive breast cancer and your benefit of radiation therapy
  5. Your physician may use the test results to help triage your care today or in the future
  6. This test can be run off your original biopsy, does not require a face to face physician visit and the results are ready in 3-5 business days
  7. Call 800 211 DCIS for more information

About Donna Pinto

I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.

    Hi Donna, I’m not sure if you remember me but my son (Aidan Rooney) played basketball with your son in high school. I hope all is great with your family. (Aidan’s a sophomore at Baylor – time flies!) I always remembered talking about DCIS breast cancer with you, and reading your blogs, etc. I was just diagnosed with DCIS and wanted to reconnect as I embark on this journey. I don’t think I receive your emails anymore (or I have missed them) and was hoping I could be added to future emails. Also would welcome connecting at some point if you have time – just let me know.  Hope you are well – take care.  Anna-Marie Rooney
