In brief: Depends

Phyllodes breast tumors are rare and most are benign.
It depends on the final pathology findings. Benign tumors only need removal with clear margins. Cancerous phyllodes tumors may need mastectomy. See this site: http://m.Cancer.Org/healthy/findcancerearly/womenshealth/non-cancerousbreastconditions/non-cancerous-breast-conditions-phyllodes-tumors.
