Breast surgery is used to treat breast cancer, breast infection, non-cancerous breast tumors and other conditions. Your doctor may recommend surgery to remove benign (noncancerous) growths as well as cancerous tumors and other disease.
At Temple Health, surgical breast care includes a full range of procedures – including breast reconstruction.
Your doctor will discuss procedures, benefits, risks and alternatives. Considerations include presence or possibility of cancer, lump size and location, age and health history.
