Depending on the size, stage and location of a tumor, our talented group of cancer specialists may recommend different mastectomy surgery options to treat breast cancer, which include:
- Partial mastectomy – The surgical removal of a tumor, along with a small noncancerous rim around it and possibly some lymph nodes
- Total mastectomy – The surgical removal of an entire breast, including the nipple and some lymph nodes, but not the underlying muscles
- Axillary node dissection – The surgical removal of lymph nodes from the armpit area
