What is mastectomy?

Overview: A mastectomy is a surgical procedure done to remove all the breast tissue from a breast to prevent breast cancer. For those struggling with early-stage breast cancer, mastectomy can be one treatment option and lumpectomy (where only the tumour is removed from the breast) is another option. Both mastectomy and lumpectomy are considered to be equally effective for preventing the recurrence of breast cancer.

Mastectomy can be a treatment option for many types of breast cancer including:

  • Stages 1 and 2 breast cancer
  • Stage 3 breast cancer (after chemotherapy)
  • Inflammatory breast cancer (after chemotherapy)
  • Non-invasive breast cancer (DCIS)
  • Locally recurrent breast cancer
  • Paget’s disease of the breast
