Breast cancer is an intricate disease. Breast cancer is developed in the breast tissues which are mostly in the inner lining of the milk ducts or in the lobules that supply milk to the ducts. Normally breast cancer starts in the cells of the lobules. Stages of breast cancer depend on how far the cancer cells have spread. Treatment for breast cancer depends on the type and stage of cancer, which can vary from an early stage, curable stage, and metastatic stage.
Breast cancer surgery differs in the amount of breast tissues that are to be removed. In some cases, the surgeon may remove some lymph nodes under the arm to test for the presence of cancer cells. This may help the doctor plan treatment after surgery.
A breast cancer surgeon may recommend the type of surgery based on the size, location, or type of breast cancer the patient is detected with. Following are some of the type of breast cancer surgeries:-
1. Lumpectomy: - In this surgery the tumor and some surrounding tissues are removed. Lumpectomy surgery is a partial mastectomy.
2. Segmental mastectomy or Quadrantectomy: - In this surgery the breast cancer and some normal tissue around it are removed.
3. Total mastectomy: - In this type surgery the entire breast is removed.
4. Modified radical mastectomy: - This surgery is helpful for those in early-stage of breast cancer. The breast including the skin, breast tissue, and most of the lymph nodes under the arm is removed in the procedure.
