If your cancer cells are clustered in a small area, most surgeons will opt to perform a lumpectomy. A lumpectomy:

  • Allows the surgeon to preserve most of the breast
  • Is less extensive than a mastectomy
  • Often allows patients to go home shortly after the surgery
  • Has a low chance of local recurrence

After your procedure, we'll follow up with tests to make sure there are no remaining cancer cells.
