Oncosurgery which can also be referred to as Surgical Oncology is the discipline of medicine concerned with surgeries used for the treatment and diagnosis of various types of cancer. It remains the foundation of the treatment of cancer. It can be used for a number of reasons, like your doctor may use cancer surgery for diagnosis, treatment, or simply relieving the symptoms of cancer. The applications of this discipline are widespread. It may be your only treatment or it could be used as a supplementary process to other procedures such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and hormone therapy. For many tumors, oncosurgery is the best cure possible, more preferred if the cancer hasnít spread and is still localized. In these cases, doctors recommend to remove the cancerous tumors from the body using cancer surgery. In other cases, a process called debulking is used, in which doctors remove as much cancerous tumor as possible, because removing complete would cause harm to an organ. They remove as much as needed, then make use of other procedures like chemotherapy and make them even more effective. Traditionally, cancer surgery cures cancer by surgically removing all of it from the patientís body. The specialists even remove some of the surrounding healthy tissues to ensure that all cancer cells have been removed. The doctors also remove some lymph nodes from that area to determine whether cancer has spread or not. This gives the doctor an estimate, if there is a need for more treatment. The risk factors should also be taken into consideration. Surgery should only be performed if the benefits outweigh the risks. The treatment of cancer is highly dependent on early diagnosis.
The earlier the diagnosis, the easier it is to treat. For this reason, many new diagnostic techniques are being invented.
