Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is a specialised area of oncology. Surgery is undertaken to remove

cancer

cells and surrounding tissues. It is often combined with

radiation therapy

and

chemotherapy

. Oncological surgery may be performed to biopsy a suspicious site for malignant cells or

tumor

. It is also used for tumor removal from such organs as the tongue, throat, lung, stomach, intestines, colon, bladder, ovary, and prostate. Tumors of limbs, ligaments, and tendons may also be treated with surgery. In many cases, the biopsy and surgery to remove the cancer cells or tissues are done at the same time as the biopsy.
