Here, you’re in the hands of experienced surgeons with a primary focus on breast cancer. Two types of breast cancer surgery are lumpectomy and mastectomy.
Also called partial breast surgery, a lumpectomy is for tumors that can be removed while leaving normal breast tissue remaining. This is typically followed by radiation.
This is used most often for larger tumors or people with a high risk of genetic breast cancer. The entire breast is removed, and reconstructive surgery may be offered before or after mastectomy.
