About Breast Cancer Surgery

Most women that have breast cancer typically require surgery to remove a breast tumor; mastectomy or breast conserving surgery, which can be reconstructed at the time of surgery or in the future. In addition, surgery is used to examine lymph nodes located under the arm to see if the cancer has spread; surgical options for this procedure include axillary/armpit sentinel lymph node biopsy and lymph node dissection.

Prior to breast cancer surgery in Palm Beach Gardens, you'll meet with Dr. Rimmer before the surgery to go over the procedure as well as your medical history. This is the perfect time to ask any questions you have (you may want to write up a list of questions as they come to you to share with the doctor) about the surgery, the potential risks, or anything else that comes to mind. Don't worry, if you can't seem to come up with many questions, or are afraid you may leave something important out, Dr. Rimmer knows all the important questions you should be asking and will have all the answers.
