What is Breast surgery
Breast surgery or a mastectomy is the most sought surgical procedure for breast cancer. In the surgery, all of the affected breast tissues are removed including some of the adjacent tissues to prevent the reoccurrence of cancer. It can either be single or double, based on the prevalence of the cancer cells. Other types of breast cancer surgeries involve the removal of the breast along with one or more adjacent lymph nodes. The surgery is performed mostly in females having a neoclassical growth of cells or tissues which may grow into malignancies. It can also be performed for cosmetic reasons. Breast reduction, non-cancerous breast lump reduction, and breast reconstruction are some of the other types.
