I'm sure your surgeon told you that a lumpectomy does not mean your chances of a recurrence are higher. It's the same for both. Usually a surgeon will make a recommendation, but sometimes they will not. They are afraid of being sued if they recommend one over the other.
It's a very personal decision. I am very happy with my lumpectomy. There's a small 2" scar that can hardly be seen.
