In brief: More information

Breast cancer is a very curable cancer if caught early.
You have not provided enough information to know if you would need a mastectomy versus a lumpectomy. Many women with breast cancers have a lumpectomy instead of a mastectomy and they do just fine. Please discuss your concerns in detail with your surgeon.
