The two main types of breast tumor removal are lumpectomy (also known as breast-conserving surgery or partial mastectomy) and mastectomy. With a lumpectomy, your surgeon removes the breast tumor along with a small rim of tissue and leaves the rest of the breast intact, while with a mastectomy, your surgeon removes the entire breast (sometimes including your nipple and areola). Both of these procedures are performed under local or general anesthetic.
You may need to stay in the hospital for 3 days, but you should plan to stay in South Korea for around 7 to 10 days. Your surgeon will schedule follow-up appointments to check your condition and to remove the stitches.
The recovery period for breast tumor removal can vary depending on which type of surgery you underwent. In general, recovering from a breast tumor can take several weeks. Some people may be able to go back to work within 2 weeks, others may require 6 weeks until they can return to their daily routine.
Make sure you follow your surgeon’s recommended aftercare instruction, which includes exercise and dietary restrictions. You will have to attend follow-up checkups with your local doctor to see if the tumor or cancer has come back if your tumor is cancerous, your doctor may suggest you undergo radiation therapy or chemotherapy as well. Besides physical aftercare, you may also want to see a therapist or counselor because breast tumor removal is a very emotional experience.
Breast tumor removal is highly successful and has helped many women survive their disease. However, you need to be aware of the side effects and risk of complications before you undergo the surgery, which includes problems with anesthesia, bleeding, infection, scabbing, lymphedema, damage to nerves around the affected area, and buildup of blood or fluid under the skin at the operation site.

Most breast tumors need to be removed to prevent complications. However, if you don’t want to undergo surgery, you may undergo photodynamic immunotherapy or other systemic therapies.
Before the procedure, you have a tumor in your breast that can be dangerous and cancerous. After the surgery, you will no longer feel any painful symptoms and your risk of complications or of cancer spreading to other parts of your body is decreased. If you want, you can also undergo breast reconstruction after breast tumor removal.
