What Kind Of A Doctor Performs Mastectomy

Talked to the doctor nurse on phone yesterday and she says that I would probaly be safe and do a partial mastectomy since there unsure what it is woul?
What prompted that?: If you have had an abnormal mammogram, a biopsy of some form is likely the next step. If you had a biopsy, the details of the pathology should be discussed with a general surgeon to determine your options for what, if anything, still needs to be done. Mastectomy of any nature (partial modified etc.) is usually for cancer. ...Read more

How does the doctor use the lattisimus dorsi for reconstruction of breast after a bi-lateral mastectomy?
Breast surgery: Three basic forms of breast reconstruction exist. You can use your own tissue, implants or a combination of the previous two techniques. Your own tissue can be used in the form of the diep flap, pap flap, sgap flap or fat grafting. Implants can be done in one stage or two stage. Two stage reconstructions are started by placing expanders at the time of mastectomy. ...Read more
Yes: Prophylactic mastectomy is performed under certain situations. Once mastectomy is performed, there are various options for breast reconstuction. The most common method is tissue-expansion/implant reconstruction. Autologous breast reconstruction, which uses your own tissue, with or without implants, is another option. Not everyone is a good candidate for each option. Discuss with your surgeon. ...Read more
Patient-Preference: Most breast cancers can be surgically treated with equal success by mastectomy or lumpectomy (+radiation). Therefore, given the option, most women choose the much less invasive rx of a lumpectomy. Many other issues may factor into this decision--age, family hx, mammogram findings, pathology, etc--therefore, a critical part of one's preoperative evaluation is to fine-tune this recommendation. ...Read more
Any advice? What size breast implant do doctors put in when reconstructing the breast after a mastectomy?
I have paronychia that is now a felon. On keflex x2 days not responding (neither is my doctor) it is on mastectomy side and I also take hydroxyurea.
Time: As long as you do not have redness extending beyond the digit I would give the antibiotics another day or two. Paronychias can lead to abscess development that require drainage. If you have redness extending beyond the digit then you should go to the er if your doctor is not responding. ...Read more
General check ups: An oncologist is a cancer specialist who will examine the pateints and look for any local signs of recurrence in the breast (in case the breast was not removed with mastectomy) and also examine the chest area and the opposite breast. There are also blood tests, chest x-ray and ct scans to look for internal spread of cancer in the abdomen. ...Read more
Yes we can: The best treatment for any early cancer is surgery, i. E. Cut it out! When the cancer is in the breast, patients have a choice to remove just the cancer (called lumpectomy) and save the breast with the help of radiotherapy to the remaining breast. Or opt for removal of the entire breast, which is called mastectomy. ...Read more

Do I have to wait until my radiation treatments are over before I can get breast reconstruction? I wanted to get immediate breast reconstruction after my mastectomy, but my doctor says I need radiation and recommended I wait. Why? .
Breast Cancer: I perform immediate breast reconstruction on patients every week who will get radiation treatments. I prefer to perform the diep flap for patients who I know will get radiated because I can take care of your own tissue much easier than an implant after radiation. The only time I don't perform or delay the reconstruction is when the tumor is close to the chest wall and maybe difficult to check. ...Read more
