Partial mastectomy better for survival than mastectomy?

Helen Glenny 0 1723
A new study from the Netherlands has shown that a smaller surgery that removes only part of the breast, plus radiation, is just as effective as a mastectomy, and may even improve survival rates.

Not all women are eligible for both surgeries. If your tumour is large relative to your breast, or if the cancer cells are spread around your breast, you might need a mastectomy. But women with small, confined cancers usually have a choice between mastectomy and BCS.

The NZBCF recommends all women have an in-depth discussion with their surgeons about which surgery best suits their situation.

What about the other breast?
