Breast cancer surgery is an important component of breast cancer treatment, which involves the surgical removal of the cancer. Breast cancer surgery may be used alone or in combination with other treatments such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, and radiation therapy.
For people at very high risk of breast cancer, breast cancer surgery may be an option to reduce the risk of breast cancer in the future.
Breast cancer surgery includes different procedures such as:
- Surgery to remove the entire breast (mastectomy)
- Surgery to remove some of the breast tissue (lumpectomy)
- Surgery to remove nearby lymph nodes
- Breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy
Which breast cancer surgery is best for you depends on the size and stage of your cancer, your other treatment options, and your goals and preferences.
