Lumpectomy

Lumpectomy (also referred to as breast-conserving surgery or partial mastectomy) is an operation performed in which the surgeon removes the tumor along with some normal breast tissue surrounding it. A lumpectomy may be performed with or without preoperative imaging localization. If the tumor is not palpable (meaning it can only be seen on breast imaging) then under imaging guidance a small wire is placed into the abnormal tissue to indicate the tissue that should be removed. The removed specimen is then imaged to confirm that it contains the abnormal area.

Women who have this type of breast cancer surgery usually:

  • Have a single breast cancer less than five centimeters in diameter
  • Have enough tissue so that removing surrounding tissue would not leave a misshapen breast
  • Are medically able to undergo
