For best results: Unfortunately it is diffuse diseases , it involves nipple and areola complex , when this area is removed will be cosmetically unacceptable , and is a aggressive disease are the reasons for mastectomy , although wide resection with good margins possible along with chemo-radiation is possible . It is also easier to reconstruct breast after mastectomy , if needed take a second opinion., discuss.
