Classical Breast Conserving Surgery

Early diagnosis methods, increased awareness of women about breast cancer, catching the disease in the early stages allow for the application of breast-conserving surgery.

As in the surgical treatment of all cancers, the main goal in breast cancer is to remove the tumorous tissue and save the patient’s life.

Surgical removal of the breast (mastectomy) causes severe psychological distress in most women. After breast loss, women often experience a range of psycho-social problems, including depression and other affective disorders, loss of sexual desire, impaired body image, fear of losing their femininity, concerns about recurrence of the disease, difficulty in finding appropriate clothing, and difficulties with external breast prostheses in the form of bras.

If the patient and the tumor are suitable, the recommended type of surgery against breast loss is the removal of cancerous tissue while preserving part of the breast (breast conserving surgery).

In this case, if the tumor is proportionally large compared to the breast, breast conserving surgery may not give the cosmetically desired result. Another issue that should not be forgotten is the necessity of radiation after breast conserving surgery.

Tumor Removal with Macromastia and Breast Reduction

In breast cancers that develop in women with large breasts, it is possible to remove breast cancer and reduce both breasts to ideal sizes at the same time.

In addition to the surgical treatment of cancer, patients can get rid of the problems they experience due to large breasts (breast pain, back pain, shoulder pain, limitation of movement, rashes under the breast that do not go away, curvature of the spine, difficulty in radiotherapy, etc.) with this method.

Large Breast (Macromastia) was an issue that was addressed from an aesthetic point of view until recently. However, the development of breast surgery and the elaboration of the issues revealed that large breast is not only an aesthetic problem, but also a functional disease.

In breast outpatient clinics, complaints of large breast disease should be well evaluated, cases should be taken seriously, and referral to physical therapy and neurology clinics or endless analgesics should not be expected to benefit because the basic problem is not solved.
