Background information on Lumpectomy [When available]
Lumpectomy is a common surgical procedure designed to remove a discrete lump (usually a tumour, benign or otherwise) from an affected woman's breast. As the tissue removed is generally quite limited and the procedure relatively non-invasive (compared to a mastectomy for example), a lumpectomy is considered a viable means of "breast conservation" or "breast preservation" surgery, with all the attendant physical and emotional advantages of such an approach.
