Surgical Management of Breast Lesions

The most common treatment for breast lesions is surgery. To define the type of lesion and plan surgical management, diagnostic modalities and clinical evaluation are used. If patients are managed and treated according to standards and advanced approaches are used, outstanding outcomes can be achieved. Fine needle aspiration cytology, core needle biopsy/Excision biopsy, and fine needle aspiration cytology were used to diagnose patients with breast lesions who came to the surgical outpatient entrance. Modified radical mastectomy with axillary lymph node dissection and thoracoabdominal skin flaps where needed were performed in our experience. Sentinallymphnode dissection was performed, followed by axillary dissection or conservative breast surgery, as required. The accuracy of ultrasonography directed fine needle aspiration cytology in clinically node negative cases of carcinoma breast was found to be correct in more than 80% of cases. Cases that were preoperatively diagnosed as benign were surgically removed. As required, incision and drainage were carried out. Surgical management that followed the guidelines resulted in a positive outcome in our experience with breast lesions. The use of modern methods produced excellent, precise results.
