Breast Conservative in Lagos
An operation to remove the cancer as well as some surrounding normal tissue, but not the breast itself. A biopsy may be performed on certain lymph nodes under the arm. If the cancer is close to the chest wall lining, it can be removed as well. Lumpectomy, partial mastectomy, quadrantectomy, and segmental mastectomy are all terms for breast-sparing surgery.
Breast-conserving surgery is a procedure that keeps the breasts from being removed. The tumour and some surrounding normal tissue are removed, but the breast is not. It’s possible that any lymph nodes under the arm will be removed. If the cancer is close to the chest wall lining, it can be removed as well.
