Surgery

Surgery is the oldest form of cancer treatment and can be used to diagnose, stage and support other cancer treatments. It involves the excision of the cancer with a margin of healthy tissue or the entire cancer-containing organ, along with the infected lymph nodes. In advanced stages, surgery may not help remove cancer, but may be performed to relieve associated symptoms. Additional surgery may be performed to reconstruct or restore the appearance or function of an excised organ.
