Hello chappy53, I'm very sorry about your diagnosis. I hope you experience a cure for it. I'm not sure what you'd like to know about your diagnosis but since it's so rare we don't have specific info on intraductal papillary carcinoma with DCIS. Though both seem very curable.
Perhaps this detailed piece from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (ncbi) will give you info enough to form specfic questions for our faculty, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3244819/

Let us know if we can help,
Janine
