BREAST SURGERY

3.1 Lumpectomy with Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy

A lumpectomy is a surgery done to remove a cancerous lump from the breast while leaving the rest of the breast intact. A sentinel lymph node biopsy is a procedure that may be done at the same time as the lumpectomy. It allows your surgeon to find and remove the first lymph node or nodes under the armpit that receives the lymph drainage from the cancer in the breast, thus preventing the spreading of cancer to the rest of the body.

3.2 Mastectomy

A mastectomy is an operation to remove the entire breast. It is usually used as a treatment for breast cancer. It may also be used as a way to reduce the risk of cancer developing in the breast. This is known as a prophylactic mastectomy and is an option for those with an increased risk of developing breast cancer. Read More.
