This type of surgery aims to conserve breast tissue by removing only the cancerous tissue, so that the breast looks normal even after the operation. It is usually followed by a moderate-dose radiation therapy to destroy any residual cancerous cells. The surgery aims at providing a low recurrence of cancer, and when combined with radiation therapy, survival is equivalent to that of mastectomy (complete removal of the breast tissue).
