breast-conserving surgery (brest-kun-SER-ving SER-juh-ree)

An operation to remove the breast cancer but not the breast itself. Types of breast-conserving
surgery include lumpectomy (removal of the lump), quadrantectomy (removal of one quarter, or
quadrant, of the breast), and segmental mastectomy (removal of the cancer as well as some of
the breast tissue around the tumor and the lining over the chest muscles below the tumor). Also
called breast-sparing surgery.
