About Mastectomy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.
What is mastectomy?
Mastectomy is the surgical removal of a breast. Mastectomy is used as a treatment for breast cancer. There are different types of mastectomy; The size and type of the tumor, the stage of the cancer, and the amount of lymph nodes to be removed are the factors that determine which type of mastectomy is appropriate for a patient. It also depends on the age and health of a patient.

What are the different types of mastectomy?
The different types of mastectomy are as follows:
  • Simple/Total Mastectomy
    In Simple/Total Mastectomy, the whole breast is removed, but the lymph nodes and the tissue surrounding it is not removed.
  • Modified Radical Mastectomy
    In Modified Radical Mastectomy, the whole breast, along with the lymph nodes in the armpits and the tissues lining the chest muscles are removed. The muscles remain in place. This is the most widely used method of mastectomy.
  • Radical Mastectomy
    In Radical Mastectomy, the breast, lymph nodes, muscles beneath the breast and the surrounding tissue of fat are removed. This is a rarely performed method and is only used for extensive tumors and if the cancer has spread to the chest wall.
  • Skin-Sparing Mastectomy
    In Skin-Sparing Mastectomy, a small incision is made around the areola. The tumor is removed through the incision. The skin is preserved and scarring is insignificant in this procedure. During this procedure, reconstruction is also performed by a plastic surgeon.
  • Subcutaneous Mastectomy
    In Subcutaneous Mastectomy, the tumor along with the breast tissue is removed. However, the nipple and skin are not removed. This procedure ensures an easy reconstruction surgery, however several cancer cells may not be removed.
  • Partial Mastectomy
    In Partial Mastectomy, the amount of breast tissue and the skin that is removed are large. Lymph nodes and the tissues lining the chest muscles beneath the tumor are also removed. This procedure is appropriate for tumors that are in stage 1 and 2.
  • Lumpectomy
    In Lumpectomy, the tumor and the tissue surrounding it is removed. Some lymph nodes are also removed.

How to prepare for a mastectomy?
  • Before a mastectomy, the doctor examines the patient and performs some tests. These include:
    • Physical examination
    • X-ray
    • Blood test
    • Urinalysis
    • Electrocardiogram

    • Health and medical conditions such as pregnancy or heart disease
    • Any medication the patient may be taking
