Breast Cancer is an abnormal growth of breast cells, that can be felt as a lump or mass and termed as a tumor. These tumor cells can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous(benign). The cancer cells can spread to the breast, lymph nodes present in the armpits or to other parts of the body. Breast cancer treatment and prognosis will mainly depend on its type, spread, stage and health of the patient.
Surgery is usually the prime line of attack against breast cancer. Decisions about surgery depend on many factors like the stage of cancer. Breast cancer surgery is a fundamental component of breast cancer treatment that involves eliminating cancer with an operation. Breast cancer surgery may be used solely or in combination with other treatments, like chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy and radiation therapy.
Breast cancer surgery procedures are surgery to remove the entire breast (mastectomy), surgery to remove a portion of the breast tissue (lumpectomy), surgery to remove nearby lymph nodes and surgery to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy. Breast cancer surgery depends highly on the size and stage of cancer, and also other available treatment options. Types of reconstruction involved are breast reconstruction with flap surgery, breast reconstruction with implants, lumpectomy, mastectomy. The aim of breast cancer surgery is to eliminate cancer cells from the breast.
