Breast Cancer Surgery
Breast Surgery is normally the first treatment you will receive for your breast cancer because it removes the cancer and also provides information about the cancer to then decide on further treatment.
A partial mastectomy or lumpectomy is an operation in which the surgeon removes the tumour along with some of the healthy breast tissue around it.

Mastectomy surgery involves removing all of the breast tissue from one or both breasts.

Lymph Node (Axillary) Surgery
If your breast cancer is invasive your surgeon will usually take out some or all of the lymph nodes under your arm during your full or partial mastectomy.
