Get Second Opinion: The surgical rx of breast cancer includes mastectomy or lumpectomy. If lumpectomy is chosen, radiation rx will be necessary, as well. The survival rates are the same for these 2 options. Therefore, most women prefer the lumpectomy. Unfortunately, some cancers are better rx'd by mastectomy. Your sister may desire a second-opinion to clarify these issues. Good luck!
