  • Can cancer come back after surgery?

    If the new lump is in the same area as the tumor that was removed and if the tumor was removed only a few months ago, then it is likely that you are feeling scar tissue. However, any new lumps should be examined by surgeon immediately to make sure there is not a recurrence. READ MORE

  • Can benign tumors come back?

    Hello, It is difficult to answer the question without knowing the exact etiology of this benign lesion. Cysts can sometimes return. Fibroadenomas can also sometimes recur although not generally in the same area. If you just recently had surgery, then you may be feeling some scar tissue that forms in the cavity. However, you should see your surgeon if there is any question of a new mass. READ MORE

  • Can cancer cells be removed surgically?

    It depends. In general, early breast cancer that is localized to the breast can be completely removed surgically however metastatic breast cancer sometimes cannot be removed completely. READ MORE

  • Surgical oncologist for a third opinion?

    Hello, A surgical oncologist reviews all surgical treatment options for breast cancer. In general, early breast cancers are treated with some type of surgery, +/- chemotherapy, +/- radiation, and +/- endocrine therapy (if the tumor is hormone positive). She should meet with a surgeon to review the surgical part of her treatment. I hope this helps Sincerely, Dr. Fornari READ MORE
