My partner has DCIS. The doctor advised for surgery. She has been taking full extract Cannabis oil for six weeks. The initial pathology report and the follow-up reports seem to be different. The surgeon knows what my partner has been taking. I have sent both the pathology reports. I need some advice, and I need these differences explained to me. So, we can decide on doing surgery or continuing with the oil treatment.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Do not try Cannabis oil as a remedy for your lesion. Your report is suggestive of ductal carcinoma in situ.
You are right, in the second report, it is given that necrosis is not evident. The necrosis could not be there because, in a repeated biopsy, that necrotic portion might not be biopsied.
But in both the reports, nuclear changes are suggestive of a malignant process is given. So, your report indicates ductal carcinoma in situ, and it is advisable not to take a risk. It is better to undergo surgery.
