Giuliana Rancic had a double lumpectomy as a part of her treatment (Two days when saying she had breast cancer).
Appearing on the “Today” show Thursday, husband Bill Rancic said the E! News host is “doing well” post-surgery.
“It was quite a protracted day,” Rancic said of the two-hour double lumpectomy his wife underwent yesterday, explaining, “There’s several steps within the method after you undergo this.”
Giuliana, 37, began her treatment with a two-hour MRI where guide wires were inserted into one breast so as for the surgeon to grasp what space to get rid of. She then had a mammogram on the opposite breast and repeated the method.
From there, she underwent a two-hour surgery to get rid of the cancerous lumps.
What is Lumpectomy ?
According to MayoClinic, Lumpectomy is surgery to remove cancer or other abnormal tissue from your breast. Lumpectomy is also called breast-conserving or breast-sparing surgery. Lumpectomy helps confirm a diagnosis of cancer or rule it out. Lumpectomy is also a first treatment option for some women with early-stage breast cancer. In cases where cancer is found, lumpectomy usually is followed by radiation therapy to reduce the chances of cancer returning.
