Cancerous breast tumour removed under Local anaesthesia usin
A British hospital has made history by becoming the first in the world to remove a cancerous breast tumour under local anaesthetic using a vacuum. It is the first time ever the innovative non-surgical procedure has been used to treat a malignant breast cancer tumour.

During the surgery, a needle is inserted into the breast to suck away small amount of tissue until the lumps are gone. During the procedure, ultrasound or mammogram images are used to show the surgeon when all the lumps are gone. The surgery has significant benefits to the patient as it's far less invasive, with a needle puncture of the skin instead of surgery.
