More details would need to be known, but most patients can undergo breast reconstruction. If you are undergoing radiation or chemotherapy at this point, you probably should wait until your treatment is complete.

Generally speaking, you should be eligible for breast reconstruction after lumpectomy, particularly if there was a cancer.  I have had these approved even for benign lesions.  That also includes a symmetry procedure on the other breast.  Best of luck!
