How to understand the available options when undergoing breast cancer surgery

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and told you’ll need surgery, you may find yourself faced with a range of information and choices to be made. 

We asked leading oncoplastic breast surgeon, Mr. Ricardo Pardo-Garcia, to explain more about these surgical options, what patients should take into consideration and when you might be an eligible candidate for:

  • Mastectomy or Lumpectomy?
  • Axillary staging options
  • Breast reconstruction

Plus, advice on how to handle that discussion with your clinician. 

If you have questions regarding any of the topics raised in this video, we encourage you to discuss them further with your healthcare provider.
