What is Cancer Surgery?

Cancer surgery is an operation performed to physically remove all or part of the cancer. Your doctor uses cancer surgery for the purpose of diagnosing, treating or relieving symptoms that the cancer may cause. In some cases, cancer surgery may be the only treatment option, or it may be used in conjunction with other treatments like radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.

Why is Surgery Recommended for Cancer?

At Surgical Associates of Neenah, our surgeons conduct cancer surgeries for a number of reasons including:

PREVENTATIVE

Cancer surgery may be done as a preventative measure to remove precancerous conditions. These preventive measures would include colonoscopy or esophogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), otherwise called an upper endoscopy.

DIAGNOSIS

All or part of a tumor may be removed so the tumor can be studied under a microscope to determine if the tumor is cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).

STAGING

Cancer surgery helps your doctor determine how advanced your cancer is. This is called staging. It also allows the doctor to evaluate the size of the tumor and if it has spread into the lymph nodes.

PRIMARY TREATMENT

For many tumors, having surgery is the best chance for defeating cancer. If it is localized and has not spread to other areas of the body, this may be the only treatment you need.

DEBULKING

If it is not possible to remove all of the cancerous tumor, your doctor may recommend removing as much of the tumor as possible. This can help the chemotherapy or radiation be more effective.

RELIEVING SYMPTOMS

Cancer surgery is sometimes used to improve the quality of life for cancer patients rather than treating the cancer itself. It may be done to relieve pain caused by pressure on nerves or other organs or to relieve an obstruction in your intestine caused by the tumor.
