Our expert says:
Ash, the surgeon is opting for the mastectomy because he feels that at this stage he can cure her as the cancer hasn’t spread to the rest of the body yet. It doesn’t help doing a mastectomy for advanced cancer as the cells have spread through the body already. If the lymph glands in her armpit are free of cancer the chances are good that the cancer hasn’t spread to the rest of the body yet. Good luck.
