Surgery is considered the primary treatment for breast cancer, especially in the early stages.

For many years, mastectomy or removal of the whole breast was deemed as necessary in order to cure breast cancer.

王光伟乳腺及普通外科医务主任王光伟医生接受《活得好》访问时说,手术被认为是乳癌的主要治疗方法,尤其是患癌早期阶段。多年来,为治愈乳癌,乳房切除术(mastectomy),也就是切除整个乳房,被认为是必要的。

“但超过40年的有力证据显示,在治疗乳癌的效果,乳房瘤切除术(lumpectomy,即只切除肿瘤及其周边小范围的正常乳房组织,确保没残留癌细胞),与乳房切除术一样有效。”
