Comment on: Warning over partial breast cancer ops
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2009 following a routine mammogram. I had a wide incision lumpectomy for a 11mm lump. Unfortunately I had another lumpectomy 2 weeks later as the surrounding area had some invasive tissue surrounding the original lump. I had lymph nodes excised at the original operation which showed no spread. This was followed by 16 radiotherapy sessions. I am now in remission. I do have yearly mammograms and I feel lucky to have had breast conservation surgery. It may not be ideal, but I still have both breasts, albeit one smaller that the other.
