Surgical Oncology/ Cancer Treatment
The surgical oncology, one of the several cancer management treatments, has developed in the same way as that of the medical oncology. It has grown out of different sections of medical science, such as radiation oncology, hematology, and radiology.
Surgical oncology concentrates on diagnosing the stage of a tumor or cancer and treating them. Focusing on surgical management of various tumors, particularly cancer, oncosurgery in India offers different procedures of treatment according to individual need.
Based on the stage, location, type, size and grade of the tumor, surgical o
ncologists determine whether a surgery is needed or not. General factors such as physical fitness, any medical condition that is already there and age may also contribute in deciding the need for a surgery.
Depending on the patient’s condition, a surgery can also include radiat
ion therapy, chemo or hormone therapy as a part of cancer treatment in India. Considering that many therapies may cause side effects, significant precautions may be suggested in advance. These nonsurgical treatments and therapies can be performed after or before surgery to avert further cancer recurrence, growth or spread.
