A breast cancer surgery is also known as mastectomy. Mastectomy surgery involves entire or partial removal of the breast. There are basically five types of mastectomy, which include modified radical mastectomy, total mastectomy, partial mastectomy, subcutaneous mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy.
In the case of simple or total mastectomy, the entire breast is removed. The surgeon usually performs lymph node dissection as well during the same surgery. However, no muscles are eliminated from the breast. Women suffering from large areas of ductal carcinoma in situ or prophylactic mastectomies should undergo complete breast removal to prevent cancer from spreading to other portions of the body.
Breast mastectomy helps to save the life of the patient. A double mastectomy is performed in women who have higher chances of getting cancer in both the breasts. Many women prefer to undergo the double mastectomy to reduce the chances of cancer recurrence.
Breast removal surgery performed with immediate reconstruction allows the plastic surgeon to reconstruct the breasts by extracting tissues from other location of the body and implanting them into the breast region. The cost of mastectomy is high, but double Mastectomy can be more expensive. The cost of the breast cancer surgery depends upon the location and type of surgery.
