Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is the branch of surgery applied to oncology; it focuses on the surgical management of tumors, especially cancerous tumors.As one of several modalities in the management of cancer, the specialty of surgical oncology, before modern medicine the only cancer treatment with a chance of success, has evolved in steps similar to medical oncology (pharmacotherapy for cancer), which grew out of hematology, and radiation oncology, which grew out of radiology.

Surgery is still a main cancer treatment option used for diagnosis, staging and even symptom relief to improve the odds, as a cancer management method, it involves the physical removal of malignant tumours from the body.

For some tumours, cancer surgery may offer a chance of cure, especially if the cancer is localised. In other cases, it may be used as a primary treatment in conjunction with other prescribed treatments.
