The main principle of rapid cancer recoveryBreasts - the maximum preservation of tissues unaffected by the disease. The procedure of the operation will depend on the degree of malignancy of the tumor, the stage of its development, and also on the overall physical condition of the patient.
And what operations on a mammary gland can be spent?
Today can be performed in two ways:
In the first case, we are talking about the removal of the entire breast, and the second option involves only neutralizing the tumor itself.
If the diagnosis revealed the presence of invasive cancer, the operation will remove not only the mammary gland, but also the axillary lymph nodes.
And how is the treatment in the postoperative period?
After any surgical intervention,as a rule, an additional course is also prescribed, which includes radiation therapy. Depending on the type of operation and the stage of cancer, hormonal or chemotherapy can be used.
