Breast surgery is categorised as benign (e.g. removal of lumps), cosmetic (e.g. reduction or augmentation) or cancer surgery.
Breast cancer surgery techniques have evolved to incorporate cancer and aesthetics together – also called oncoplastic surgery. We are much less radical than before and continue to make progress in diagnostics (equipment) – alongside radiology; surgical techniques and adjuvant treatments alongside oncology.
Specialist Breast Care Nurses provide counselling as appropriate.
