New guideline provides recommendations for breast cancer surgeons
from Health Canal
Over the past 20 years, rigorous clinical trials have demonstrated that lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy is as effective as mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer, providing female patients with a breast-conserving treatment option. During lumpectomy, surgeons remove both the primary tumor and a rim of normal tissue surrounding the tumor, referred to as the "surgical margin."
