Overview

Breast cancer surgery is a key component of breast cancer usually the first line of attack against cancer. The treatment involves removing cancer with an operation. It may be used alone or in combination with other treatments, such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, and radiation therapy to prevent cancer from reoccurring in the breasts. Breast cancer has different surgery options that depend on many factors like the stage of cancer, the “personality” of cancer, and what is acceptable to the patient in terms of the long-term peace of mind. 

Lumpectomy– In this surgery, the surgeon removes only a portion of the breast tissue. In some cases, even the lymph nodes around the armpits may be removed. It is a partial mastectomy because only a part of the breast tissue is removed. It conserves the breasts to an extent as much as possible. This generally takes place in women with small breasts or women with early cancer stages. 

Mastectomy – Partial Mastectomy, is the removal of the cancerous part along with the healthy tissue around. Whereas lumpectomy is technically a form of partial mastectomy, more tissue is removed in partial mastectomy than in lumpectomy. Total Mastectomy is the removal of the entire breasts along with the nipples, areola, and sentinel lymph nodes. By opting for a total mastectomy, there are fewer chances of reoccurrence.

Symptoms

There may not be any specific indications of breast cancer but finding breast cancer as early as possible gives you a better chance for a successful treatment. Some screening tests are done to discover if there’s breast cancer or not. However, it’s not necessary that a mammogram can find every cancer, and thus, in order to identify cancer’s presence in the lymph nodes, a sentinel lymph node dissection is conducted. The most common symptoms of breast cancer may include: A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancer, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded.
