I have invasive ductile carcinoma in left breast – very small, slow growing and Stage 1. Trying to decide between lumpectomy and mastectomy- thoughts?

Was diagnosed on April 14. Stage 1a, IDC, HR+PR+HERs2-
The surgeon in Duluth told me that lumpectomy w/radiation ahas nearly the same outcome as mastectomy so I chose lumpectomy with sentinel node biopsy. Not for vanity (I am 73) but for the healing. Had surgery on May 14 in Duluth. I am in the process of 2nd opinion for radiation/hormone therapy at Mayo.

Have any of your doctors explained the difference in outcomes?
