My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, and in order to stop the cancer from getting worse, the doctors had to remove her left breast. Is this common?

    Yes it is the best thing to do. But it does depend on size of the breast and lump size. For instance, if a lump was large and the person had small breasts it would be best to have a mastectomy.
