1 point by drpriyankachiripal 126 days ago | web | 1 comment

Breast conservation surgery, or lumpectomy, is a procedure preserving breast tissue while removing cancer. Before surgery, diagnostic tests confirm cancer presence. During the procedure, the tumor and surrounding healthy tissue are excised. Post-surgery may involve radiation or adjuvant therapies. Risks include infection, bleeding, and rare complications. Regular follow-ups are crucial for monitoring and maintaining breast health.
