I was asked to be part of a clinical study (which I have decided not to do) then I saw my radiation
oncologist who determined that I would need 3 wks of radiation
with 1 "booster" week. I have been told from the start that with a lumpectomy I would need radiation. I found out later about the hormone therapy. I want to know if this is standard of care for my situation. I had a 1cm lump including DCIS and ILC. My margins were 6mm, 1cm, 5cm, 6cm.
