Breast Cancer

Surgery is the most common and often chosen method of breast cancer treatment.

Palouse Surgeons provides all types of surgical treatment solutions that your doctor may recommend as the best method to treat breast cancer depending on the stage and personality of the cancer and based on the patient’s long term objectives.

Surgical options include:


  • Lumpectomy which only removes the tumor and some surrounding tissue to conserve as much of the breast as possible.
  • Mastectomy is the removal of all breast tissue. In most cases, while the breast tissue is removed, the muscles under the breast are left in tact.
  • Lymph node removal can take place in addition to lumpectomy and mastectomy if it is determined the cancer has spread outside of the breast.
  • Breast reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy can take place at the same time as the original breast cancer surgery, or at a later time.
