Partial Mastectomy

Partial mastectomy (sometimes called lumpectomy) is a breast-conserving operation in which the surgeon removes the tumour together with some of the healthy breast tissue surrounding it.

Women who have this surgery usually:

  • Have a single breast cancer less than 3cm in diameter
  • Have enough breast tissue so that removing surrounding tissue would not leave a misshapen breast, and are medically able to undergo surgery and follow-up radiation therapy.
