The treatment of breast cancer depends on your breast cancer type, stage, size, sensitivity to hormones and your general health status during diagnosis. In general, there are several treatment options to be used and combined.


  • Despite different modalities being used for the treatment of breast cancer, surgery remains the mainstay treatment.
  • Lumpectomy: Although the correct term for this operation is Wide Local Excision (WLE), which consists of local excision of the tumour and a small margin of surrounding healthy breast tissue. 
  • Mastectomy: Here, the surgeon removes the entire affected breast. This is used for larger breast cancer tumours.
  • Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB): in order to determine whether cancer has spread to your lymph nodes.
  • Axillary Node Clearance (ANC), the surgeon removes all the lymph nodes in the armpit of the affected side if the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes

We offer any of the above cancer surgeries based on the clinical indications by our British trained Oncoplastic surgeon who in the majority of cases can offer an oncoplastic or reconstructive surgery to alleviate any deformity expected from these procedures, with emphasis on the cancer treatment the cosmetic appearance is not being ignored as many studies showed its importance in the overall treatment of the cancer patient.

  • Endocrine Therapy (Hormone treatment). For those breast cancers with hormonal sensitivity. This therapy blocks the hormonal stimulus in breast cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Radiation therapy.
  • Immunotherapy
