In brief: Multiple

The mainstay treatment for breast cancer is surgery, either mastectomy or lumpectomy, with sampling or removal of the lymph nodes in the armpit.
Radiation is usually needed in conjunction with lumpectomy, but not necessarily with mastectomy. Chemotherapy may be added depending on the stage and characteristics of th cancer. Lastly, hormonal therapy may be useful depending on the tumor receptors.

In brief: Depends on stage

The treatment for breast cancer depends on the stage of disease.
Surgical removal, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormonal therapy are all used either alone or in combination depending on the stage of the tumor.
