Hello Annet, For breast cancer treatment at stage 2 B, Surgery is going to be the base followed by:
- Radiation Therapy,
- and Hormone Therapy.
Thus, surgery is an important and compulsory part of treatment. Since in this stage the tumor has spread to lymph nodes, so they have to be removed along with the lump to get the best possible results. Thus, Mastectomy (Breast Cancer Surgery) is needed.
But don't worry after surgery you can get breast-conserving surgery done through which breasts can be reconstructed. Hope this answers your query.
