Welcome from another relative newbie! When I was diagnosed my surgeon told me the outcomes were equally positive for either a mastectomy or a lumpectomy + radiation. I assume they have clinical evidence that the risk of recurrence is decreased if you have the radiation too. I chose the lumpectomy + radiation, ended up being stage 1 but triple negative receptors so I need chemo too. Ask lots of questions - I literally make lists of mine! And come here to this site, it's helped me enormously! Take care, Missy
