Breast Surgery (also called a lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, partial mastectomy, or segmental mastectomy) – A surgery in which only the part of the breast containing the cancer is removed. The goal is to remove cancer as well as some surrounding normal tissue.
A mastectomy is a surgery to remove the entire breast. Usually, some of the skin and the nipple are also removed. Breast Surgery in Houston is most often done to treat breast cancer. There are different types of mastectomies. Which one your surgeon performs depends on the type of breast problem you have and your own preferences.
