Lumpectomy in Lagos
The procedure known as a lumpectomy is a form of “breast-conserving” or “breast protection” surgery. Breast-conserving surgery is also known as a biopsy, lumpectomy, partial mastectomy, re-excision, quadrantectomy, or wedge resection. Since part of the breast tissue is detached, a lumpectomy is technically a partial mastectomy. However, the amount of tissue removed varies a lot.
