Mastectomy

A mastectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all breast tissue from a breast in order to treat or prevent breast cancer. For those with early-stage breast cancer, a mastectomy may be one treatment option. Newer mastectomy techniques can preserve breast skin and allow for a more natural breast appearance following the procedure. This procedure is known as skin-sparing mastectomy. Mastectomy can be performed to remove one breast or as referred to unilateral mastectomy and both breasts or as referred to as bilateral mastectomy   Types of Treatable Cancer by Mastectomy Mastectomy can be used to treat a wide number of cancers in women such as: Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or noninvasive breast cancer Early Stage or Stages I and II of breast cancer Locally Advanced or Stage III breast cancer after chemotherapy Inflammatory breast cancer Paget's disease of the breast Locally recurrent breast cancer   Why Mastectomy Over Lumpectomy? Having two or more tumors in separate areas of the breast. Having widespread or malignant-appearing calcium deposits throughout the breast that have been determined to be cancer after a breast biopsy. Where radiation treatment was administered previously to the breast region and the breast cancer has recurred in the breast. Being pregnant and radiation creates an unacceptable risk to your unborn child. Underwent a lumpectomy, but cancer is still present at the edges (margin) of the operated area and there is concern about cancer extending to elsewhere in the breast. Where the patient is at a higher risk of developing a second cancer in your breast. Having a large tumor relative to the overall size of the breast. Having a connective tissue disease, such as scleroderma or lupus, and may not tolerate the side effects of radiation to the skin.

Types Of Mastectomy Total Mastectomy: A total mastectomy also known as a simple mastectomy involves removal of the entire breast, including the breast tissue, areola and nipple. A sentinel lymph node biopsy may be done at the time of a total mastectomy. Skin-sparing Mastectomy: A skin-sparing mastectomy involves removal of all the breast tissue, nipple and areola, but not the breast skin. Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately after the mastectomy. However, a skin-sparing mastectomy may not be suitable for larger tumors. Nipple-sparing Mastectomy: A nipple- or areola-sparing mastectomy involves removal of only breast tissue, sparing the skin, nipple and areola. A sentinel lymph node biopsy also may be done. Breast reconstruction is performed immediately afterward.  

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the surgery take? A mastectomy surgery alone can take upto 2 – 3 hours without re-construction. What is the recovery time of Mastectomy? The recovery time from a mastectomy can vary from person to person, but it typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. Does a patient need to have breast reconstruction? No. It is entirely upon the patient, some patients decide that they are not ready to have reconstruction while many do not want to undergo any further surgeries. Some even opt to wear prosthesis or an artificial breast. Are there any exercise a patient is required to do after Mastectomy? The doctor or nurse will guide you on some basic physical therapy exercises that you can start the day after the surgery to maintain upper body mobility as you heal. However, it may need 8 or more weeks before you can do that type of exercise, especially if you've had mastectomy with many lymph nodes removed.

Patient Stories

  1. I first discovered Medtravels when I was doing online research looking for treatment of PCOD. I have lived with the pain and discomfort for more than a couple of years now which had affected my personal and social life. But Radiofrequency ablation treatment for me has come as a blessing indeed and in just one day I could feel the improvement, the pain was gone and I could walk easily. I was nervous about traveling half way around the world to have the surgery, but upon my arrival the staff put all my worries at ease. The pre-op tests performed on me in India were tests never performed on me in the United States. Thanks again to your team.
