Hi--what was the first pathology report--just DCIS?
Not yet a confirmatory report.so far possibly a papillary dcis.need to rule out invasive cancer.

OK. We can continue after this but first off no need to cancel your holiday trip.
The main purpose of the pathology report is to make sure that the surgical margins are clear--that all the area of cancer has been fully excised with no cancer cells left behind.
The second opinion may just be to confirm that this is truly DCIS and not just a benign adenoma of your breast.
In general, the first excision of DCIS is successful and no further surgery is necessary
Let me know if you have any further questions
