What is Ovarian Cancer?

When a noncancerous tumor, such as a fibroadenoma of the breast, is removed, it is called a lumpectomy.

Who usually gets Breast lumpectomy?

This surgery is usually suggested to women who:
Have a single tumour that's <5 cm in diameter
Have sufficient tissue near tumour so that removing adjacent tissue won’t disfigure breast
Are medically fit to get radiation treatment post this surgery

What to expect before surgery?

Before surgery, Dr. Monika Pansari conducts thorough counseling of the patient and the relatives regarding the treatment and expected outcomes. A mammogram or an ultrasound is usually done before the surgery to locate and mark the tumour, if it cannot be seen or felt. Drawings are made to mark the incisional lines. The surgery is performed under anesthesia.

What happens during lumpectomy?

Lumpectomy will be performed either under general anesthesia (patient will be asleep and cannot feel pain) or local anesthesia (patient will be awake and pain-free).
The surgeon makes a small cut on the breast. The tumor and some of the normal breast tissue around it is removed. Surgeon will send the lump to the pathologist for more testing.

After the Procedure

Post removal of the lump, sometimes, a drain will be attached to the breast area or armpit to collect excess fluid that may gather in the space where the tumor was.
Patients generally recover completely at home in a few days after discharge. After surgery, patients will be prescribed pain-relieving medications. The doctor does the first bandage removal during the first follow-up visit. Dr. Monika will also counsel the patient and the family regarding the dressing and drain care at home. She will also teach how to recognize signs of infection. The stitches used are either self-dissolvable or surgical staples, which will be removed during first follow-up visit after inspection by the surgeon. Patients will also be taught simple exercises to prevent arm stiffness after surgery.
