SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… While all this continued as the standard of care for the first 65 years of the 20th century, some smart minds in the medical field started questioning the necessity of performing such radical surgeries to get optimum results. Trials got underway to compare mastectomy versus breast conservation surgery in the 1970s. A pathologist turned surgeon, Dr Umberto Veronesi, pioneered the most convincing trial in Milan. He was able to show that breast conservation surgery (removal of the lump with a surrounding 1 cm margin of normal breast tissue) followed by radiation therapy to the rest of the breast in properly selected patients yielded the same results as a complete removal of the breast. I am quite convinced that it is the pathologist in this surgeon who urged him to go for this trial. He had probably seen while looking at the breast as a pathologist that far too much was being done to address small cancers in the breast. Finally, women with breast cancer had a choice….

Surgery aims to remove the breast cancer with a margin (border) of normal tissue to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back in the breast (known as local recurrence) and to try to stop any spread elsewhere in the body. The amount of tissue removed depends on the area of the breast affected and the size of the cancer in your breast. Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath - Best Breast Cancer Surgeon in Delhi

One of the first decisions you may have to make is which type of operation you'll have. You may be offered a choice of breast-conserving surgery, (usually referred to as lumpectomy or wide local excision) or a total mastectomy (removal of all the breast tissue including the nipple area). Sometimes it can be helpful to talk through your choices with your breast care nurse and discuss how each would affect you. Dr. Geeta Kadayaprath - Breast Cancer Treatment in Delhi

Breast conservation is better than before. With oncoplastic surgery, it is possible to restore the shape of the breast after surgery for breast cancer. Dr Geeta Kadayaprath, Head, Breast Surgical Oncology, Max Cancer Centre, Patparganj, Vaishali, Noida
