Excision of Benign Breast Lesion

Occurring in both men and women, benign breast diseases are noncancerous disorders that can cause discomfort or pain. In addition, the presence of a benign breast disease can increase the risk of breast cancer. To combat pain and cancer risks, treatment is necessary. The benign breast lesion excision consists of a small incision made on the breast for the removal of lesion, or lump, as well as a surrounding rim of normal breast tissue are removed. The surgery is minimally invasive and conducted on an outpatient basis.

Percutaneous Breast Biopsy

If a possible tumor was identified in the breast and needs further investigation, a percutaneous breast biopsy will take place. Guided by imaging, a needle is inserted into the breast to extract small tissue samples from the lump. The biopsy is then sent to a lab for further evaluation. While there are different types of percutaneous biopsies, including needle aspiration, core needle biopsy and vacuum-assisted biopsy, all procedures are completed under local anesthesia, allowing patients to essentially recover immediately and continue on with their routine with only slight soreness or bruising.

Partial Mastectomy/SNL

Preserving the healthy, noncancerous part of the breast and normal sensation of the nipple, a partial mastectomy removes the malignant lesion as well as a margin of normal breast tissue. Good candidates are generally more satisfied with the cosmetics of their breast upon completion of the surgery. This procedure is typically followed by postoperative radiation therapy.

Sentinel Node Biopsy & Excision of Deep Axillary Nodes

The lymph nodes in the underarm are called axillary nodes, and are likely the first place breast cancer will spread to. To learn if cancer has in fact spread to the lymph nodes, a biopsy will take place. Helping surgeons determine what nodes to remove and test, dye is injected into the breast and absorbed first by sentinel nodes (those that would have a greater risk for being affected by cancer cells). Once removed, sentinel nodes are reviewed by a pathologist. If cancer is found, more lymph nodes may need to be removed with an excision of deep axillary nodes.
