Brief Summary:
This research study is evaluating how patients feel physically and emotionally after a prior breast biopsy for specific breast conditions (including atypical lesions such as atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH), lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS), and/or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS))

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Patient-reported Outcomes Survey
The survey will administered online, over the phone, or via mail.
Other: Survey
Select questions will be ask in the survey

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compare patient-reported outcomes (PROs) between patients diagnosed with DCIS who received GCC to patients diagnosed with ADH and LCIS/ALH in a cross-sectional patient cohort at 3 selected study sites. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The primary outcome will be measuring severity of chronic pain.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measure the incremental utility of GCC compared to AS according to a preference-based quality-adjusted life year metric (QALY). [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Quality of life (QOL) measuring of utility including Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs).

  2. Quality of life (QOL) measuring of utility including Patient Reported Outcomes [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Patient Reported Quality of Life.
