Breast Cancer Surgery

Breast cancer is cancer that affects breast tissues, milk ducts or glands.  Cancer starts as a small lump or calcium deposit which later spreads in the body via blood.  Cancer grows in the tissues that surround breasts such as in skin or chest wall. Lumps are the earlier signs of cancer.  BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the two genes responsible for breasts cancer. Genetics, age factor, ethnicity, and lifestyle play a major role in generating of cancer in women. 

Breast cancer surgery is performed to remove the cancerous tissues from the breasts. The aim of the surgery is to remove the unwanted growth of the tumor while it is localized so that the tumor does not spread throughout the breast. There are different approaches to the surgery depending upon the size of the cancerous lump, stage of cancer, its spread, overall health, menopause condition, hormone type, and the presence of protein.

Breast cancer surgery completely removes the cancerous lump, therefore, it is considered as the best option. A doctor generally performs sentinel lymph node biopsy and axillary lymph node dissection to check for cancerous cells.

  •     Breast-conserving surgery is also referred as lumpectomy,  it is performed to remove only the part where the cancer is located.
  •     Partial mastectomy or quadrant ectomy involves removing more breasts tissue as compared to lumpectomy. This is followed by radiation therapy.
  •     Mastectomy involves removal of complete breasts when cancer has spread in all breasts tissue and nearby tissue.
  •     Radical mastectomy involves complete removal of the breast, nipple, and lymph nodes in the armpit along with the chest muscles. Radical mastectomy surgery is rarely performed.
