The Wide Local Excision operation is also known as a lumpectomy. It is suitable when the breast cancer is relatively small in relations to the size of breast and single (as compared to multiple cancers). Wide Local Excision operation are usually followed later by whole breast radiotherapy, though there are some conditions where radiotherapy can be omitted.

In my NHS practice for the year 2018-2019, 110 out of 162 (67.9%) of my breast cancer patients were successfully with a lumpectomy.

In addition to accurate removal of the cancer with clear cancer margins, I also employ oncoplastic techniques that ensure a favourable final cosmetic appearance of the breast. The aim is to achieve symmetry in terms of size, shape and position of the nipple.
