Mastectomy Surgery and Treatment at Best Costs in Tijuana, Mexico

Mastectomy Surgery and Treatment at Best Costs in Tijuana, Mexico

Mastectomy is the surgical removal of all breast tissue from the breast to treat or prevent breast cancer.

Patients diagnosed with breast cancer at an early-stage are recommended mastectomy as one of the many treatment options. It is effective when Lumpectomy (Breast-conserving surgery) is not particularly suggested by the doctor.

Mastectomy is effective in preventing a recurrence of breast cancer. Latest mastectomy techniques (Skin-sparing mastectomy) potentially preserve breast skin. It also has room for a more natural breast appearance after the procedure.

Breast reconstruction surgery can be done at the same time as your mastectomy restores shape to your breast or during a second operation at a later date.

Why is Mastectomy Done?

Mastectomy is an umbrella term that combines a number of procedures. Apart from removing one or both breasts, mastectomy also consists of the responsibility of removing lymph nodes in the armpit. This is determines whether the cancer has spread.

Mastectomy for Breast Cancer Treatment

Mastectomy is effective in treating many types of breast cancer:

  • Stages I and II (early-stage) breast cancer
  • Stage III (locally advanced) breast cancer — after chemotherapy
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ, or noninvasive breast cancer
  • Inflammatory breast cancer — after chemotherapy
  • Locally recurrent breast cancer
  • Paget's disease of the breast

Doctor usually recommends mastectomy rather than lumpectomy plus radiation in case the patient has:

  • Two or more tumors in different areas of the breast
  • Widespread or malignant-appearing calcium deposits (microcalcifications) throughout the breast
  • Previously had radiation therapy to the breast region but cancer has recurred in the breast
  • Is pregnant and radiation can create an unacceptable risk to the unborn child
  • Previous records of lumpectomy, but cancer is still present at the breast margin or edges
  • Carries a gene mutation with high risk of developing a second cancer in the breast
  • Has a large tumor relative to the overall size of the breast
  • Has a connective tissue disease like scleroderma or lupus

Mastectomy to Prevent Breast Cancer

Sometimes mastectomy is considered even if you don't have breast cancer, but there exists a very high risk of developing the disease. This is known as the preventive (prophylactic) or risk-reducing mastectomy that involves removal of both the breasts to reduce risks of developing breast cancer in the future.

Also, prophylactic mastectomy is performed on women with:

  • A very high risk of breast cancer
  • Strong family history of breast cancer
  • Presence of certain genetic mutations that increase the risk of breast cancer
