Surgery

Surgery is the removal of tumor and the adjacent tissues affected with tumor at a time. Surgical oncologist is a person who specializes in treating cancer using surgery. There are goals for the cancer surgery they include,

  • To diagnose cancer
  • To remove some or all the cancer
  • To find out where the cancer is located
  • To find out the cancer has spread or is affecting the functions of other organs in the body
  • To restore the body’s appearance or function
  • To relieve side effects

For most of the cancers, biopsy is only the way to make a definitive diagnosis. At the time of surgical biopsy, the surgeon makes a cut called incision on the skin. The 2 main surgical biopsies include

1. An incisional biopsy- it is removal of piece of suspicious area for examination.

2. An excisional biopsy- it is the removal of entire suspicious area, such as mole or a lump.

After the biopsy a pathologist uses a microscope to examine the tissue removed and does laboratory tests for evaluating cells, tissues and organs to diagnose disease and provide a pathology report to the oncologist or the surgeon who performs the diagnosis.

  • An excisional biopsy
