Mastectomy vs. Breast Conservation Therapy

From Mastectomy to Breast Conservation Therapy

As recently as the ‘80s, the standard treatment for women diagnosed with breast cancer was a mastectomy (removal of the entire breast). Since then, thanks to technological advances in detection combined with new treatment approaches, most women now have the option to save their breasts by choosing a treatment called breast conservation therapy (BCT).

BCT involves the removal of the tumor (lumpectomy), followed by radiation therapy. After decades of research, physicians agree BCT is as effective as mastectomy in decreasing the risk of local recurrence.
