What is a Breast Lump Removal Surgery?

A breast lump removal surgery known as lumpectomy is the surgical of a cancerous or noncancerous breast tumor. A lumpectomy also includes removing a small amount of normal breast tissue around a cancerous tumor. Other names for breast lumpectomy include partial mastectomy, breast-conserving surgery, breast-sparing surgery, and wide excision. Doctors most commonly use a lumpectomy to treat small, early stage breast cancer tumors in women. Lumpectomy recovery goes smoothly for most patients; lumpectomy recovery time is about a month.

How is a lumpectomy performed?

Your lumpectomy will be performed in a hospital. Your surgeon will make an incision in the breast and remove the lump. If the tumor is cancerous, your surgeon will also remove some normal breast tissue around the tumor and sample (biopsy) the nearby lymph nodes in your armpit for signs of cancer. A pathologist will confirm that the tissue and lymph nodes do not contain cancer cells. If the pathologist finds cancer cells in the tissue, the surgeon will remove more breast tissue and lymph nodes as necessary.

Your surgeon will advise you on which procedure is best for you and how long you need to stay in the hospital based on your diagnosis, age, medical history, general health, and possibly your personal preference. Learn about the different lumpectomy procedures and ask why your surgeon will use a particular type for you.
