Hi Lisa. I had DCIS with bilateral mascetomy. I see an oncologist every 6 months. While she says I am cured, she will follow me every 6 months for 5 years post diagnosis, then annually another 5 years. It is good because she is keeping up on things and lots has changed even since my diagnosis in 2012...like additional genetic testing I might be interested in. Like the other ladies have said, it doesn't hurt and it gives me peace of mind. There could be recurrance and I would be on top of it. Hope this helps! Susan
