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

Have any of your doctors explained the difference in outcomes?

As best I can recall, if I chose mastectomy, I would not need radiation. I chose lumpectomy and was a candidate for the 3 session radiation at Mayo. As I understood it, long term outcomes were the same.
