Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston explains his thoughts on DCIS. As breast cancer patients know, DCIS is a type of breast cancer that is found in the ducts of the breast. The cancer is not invasive and has not metastasized to other areas of the body and in some instances, patients will elect to take the “wait and see” approach.
Mr. Boston talks about how a person who decides to take the wait and see approach must really take the time to get all options from their treating doctors. In addition to asking for all options from the treating doctors, Mr. Boston stresses how the patient needs to make sure that they are asking their multidisciplinary team the hard questions.
At the end of the day the choice is that of the patient. However, the patient needs to make sure that they are well aware of all the risks involved.
