    There are numerous factors for both. What is your doctor recommending? Gather all your facts both pro and con and ask your doctor. If need be seek a 2nd and if need be a 3rd opinion. One must decide on what they feel is their best option. I had a mastectomy but still had 5 1/2 weeks of radiation and 4 cycles of chemotherapy.

    I had a lumpectomy with 16 radiation treatments. Each person’s situation is different, so as Betti suggested, get a second, third or fourth opinion, and then do what you know is best for you. Trust your gut; you’ll do the right thing!
