Frequently Asked Questions

What is surgical oncologist referred to?

They may specialize in different bodily locations in order to focus on specific cancer types. In Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, surgical oncologists are the ones who prescribe chemotherapy drugs and perform the treatment in people who require to undergo the treatment.
Cancer surgery involves removing the tumour as well as any adjacent tissues that contain cancer cells. A surgical oncologist is a surgeon who specializes in treating cancer through surgery. There are numerous reasons to have surgery: To get rid of part or all of the cancer cells. To alleviate cancer-related adverse effects.
If the cancer is in many different parts of the body, surgery won't be able to get rid of it all. Sometimes surgery can't be done because the cancer is close to very fragile tissues or a part of the body that is very important. For instance, cancer could be close to important blood vessels. This means that the surgeon won't be able to get rid of all of cancer.
Most treatments for stage 4 cancer focus on the one place where cancer has spread the most. Surgery and/or radiation can be used to try to get rid of all of cancer at the far site.
Typically, curative or primary surgery is performed when cancer is confined to one area of the body and it is possible that the entire tumour can be removed. It is termed "curative" since the goal of the surgery is to entirely eradicate the malignancy. In this instance, surgery may be the primary treatment option.
