Breast Lump Removal

An Introduction

Breast lump or mass of breast are of two types -
1. Benign (Non- Cancerous) Breast Lumps,
2. Malignant (Cancerous).

Fibroadenoma is common cause for a lump in young women, often between the ages of 15-30, solid lump may be single or multiple. Fibroadenomas are usually painless, and they probably arise due to hormonal changes in the breast. As a consequence, the lump may arise in an area of the breast where is already more generalised hormonal breast pain and tenderness giving the false impression that the lump is causing the pain. Since they are solid lumps fibroadenomas generally do not disappear, although during pregnancy they may undergo noticeable changes resulting in either their disappearance or their progressive enlargement.

Fibroadenomas are normally harmless but should be carefully checked and investigated by ultrasound and needle biopsy. Once a lump has been shown to be definitely a fibroadenoma, it is safe to live under strict supervision and if it does not

disappear surgery is the answer. Fibroadenoma is removed by a small periareolar incision, as Dr. R. K. Mishra removes all the lumps cosmetically leaving almost no scar on your breast.

If there is any doubt of malignancy or confirmed by needle biopsy, that too can be removed by wide excision in a cosmetic manner so that the breast get very less deformity and scarring.

Are you a good Candidate for the procedure?

You could be a good candidate for fibroadenoma enucleation or Lumpectomy of lesion if you have Fibroadenoma or other benign lumps in your breasts. Majority of the Breast Lumps are Benign (non-cancerous) but require proper evaluation.

The Procedure (view the procedure in 3-D animation)

Traditionally these lumps are treated by general surgeons who remove the lumps through direct incisions on the breast lump. These leave behind undesirable ugly scars that permanent tell tale signs for a temporary problem at a young age on an intimately important part of the body. But Dr. R. K. Mishra performs entirely different technique that leaves almost no scarring on your breast. The surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia and takes ½ hrs to 2 hrs depending on the size and number of the lumps. The lump is removed through a fine semicircular incision that is made around the nipple which is barely visible after healing and fades with time. Multiple lumps can be removed through this single incision.

 
Your Recovery

The recovery period is very short and you can go home at the same day of your surgery. You are likely to feel a little discomfort for first one-two days. There will be swelling on your breasts that will settle down within 1-2 weeks.

Expected Results

Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your abdomen should remain firmer and flatter for many years. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually take their toll. If, after a period of years, you again become dissatisfied with the appearance of your abdomen, you may choose to undergo a second procedure to restore a more youthful body contour. Studies and surveys have repeatedly shown that its initial effects are very visible and, as a result, it has a high patient satisfaction rating.
