Patient discussion about cancer surgery

Q. I want to know that is my surgery safe to keep me off from the next chances of cancer?How long will I be safe? I had a mammogram last week and they had found some lumps which was removed by lumpectomy. I have seen some women with breast cancer, with the reversal of breast cancer. I wanted to know that is my surgery safe to keep me off from the next chances of cancer? How long will I be safe? I think something will happen again.

A. Well…chances in the reversal of breast cancer after lumpectomy are possible in the future. Some women who are treated by surgery like lumpectomy only, are on a high risk for the cancer to reverse. Anyone treated with other treatments like radiation therapy, chemotherapy or hormone therapy has comparatively very less chance. The cancer can even reverse as an invasive cancer. Though many reoccur with 5 - 10 years after diagnosis.
