What is a mastectomy?

A mastectomy in Turkey is the surgical removal of a breast. Mastectomy is used as a treatment for breast cancer. There are different types of mastectomy. The size and type of tumour, the stage of the cancer and the amount of lymph nodes to be removed are the factors that determine which type of mastectomy is appropriate for a patient. It also depends on the patient’s age and state of health.

What are the different types of mastectomy?

The different types of mastectomy are as follows:

  • Simple/total mastectomy
    In simple/total mastectomy, the entire breast is removed, but the lymph nodes and surrounding tissues are not.
  • Modified radical mastectomy
    In a modified radical mastectomy, the entire breast is removed, along with the lymph nodes in the armpits and the tissue covering the chest muscles. The muscles remain in place. This is the most widely used mastectomy method.
  • Radical mastectomy
    In radical mastectomy, the breast, lymph nodes, muscles under the breast and surrounding fatty tissue are removed. This method is rarely performed and is only used for large tumours and if the cancer has spread to the chest wall.
  • Skin resection mastectomy
    In skin mastectomy, a small incision is made around the areola. The tumour is removed through this incision. The skin is preserved and the scar is insignificant in this procedure. During this procedure, reconstruction is also carried out by a plastic surgeon.
  • Subcutaneous mastectomy
    In a subcutaneous mastectomy, the tumour and breast tissue are removed. However, the nipple and skin are not removed. This procedure allows for easy reconstruction surgery, but it is possible that several cancer cells are not removed.
  • Partial mastectomy
    In partial mastectomy, the amount of breast tissue and skin removed is significant. The lymph nodes and tissues lining the chest muscles beneath the tumour are also removed. This procedure is suitable for stage 1 and 2 tumours.
  • Lumpectomy
    In lumpectomy, the tumour and surrounding tissues are removed. Some lymph nodes are also removed.

How do you prepare for a mastectomy?

  • Before a mastectomy, the doctor examines the patient and carries out certain tests. These include
    • Physical examination
    • X-rays
    • Blood analysis
    • Urinalysis
    • Electrocardiogram
  • The patient must inform the doctor of
    • Health and medical conditions such as pregnancy or heart disease
    • Any medication the patient may be taking
  • The doctor will inform the patient about the surgical procedure and what to expect.
  • The doctor will decide on the type of anaesthetic to give the patient after determining the extent of the operation.
  • The doctor will discuss the details of the breast reconstruction.
