Breast Surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC
Medical breast surgery is either referred to as a lumpectomy or a mastectomy. A lumpectomy is a surgery for removing cancerous breast tissue while preserving other areas of the breast, as well as breast sensation. During a mastectomy, all breast tissue is removed to prevent breast cancer or to treat present breast cancer. A mastectomy may remove one or both breasts and can be followed up with breast reconstruction surgery if a patient is interested. Both of these breast surgeries are effective ways of treating breast cancer. A mastectomy may be recommended if a patient:
- Has tumors spread throughout the entire breast
- Has inflammatory breast cancer
- Has had radiation therapy to the breast
