Onco Surgery is the field of surgery primarily concerned with the management of oncological tumors; it aims at the prevention and treatment of cancer. Oncologic tumors are non-cancerous tumor cells that have spread from their original sites, but are still causing symptoms that do not respond to other forms of treatment. Oncologic Oncology seeks to treat all types of cancer, as well as non-cancerous tumors; and oncologic oncologists usually specialize in a specific type of cancer or non-cancerous tumors that are related to the malignant cancer. The treatment options for cancer include radiation, chemotherapy and surgery.
Cancer that is cancerous in nature can be removed through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and the surgical removal of tumors. In general, oncologists focus on the prevention and removal of cancer, using the appropriate method depending upon the type of cancer. Oncologists who focus on prevention often prescribe medication for people with cancer. Some of the medication used includes radiation therapy and the use of various drugs like tamoxifen or raloxifene. Cancer may also be treated through surgery, but if the tumor is small, or if there is no place to surgically remove it, the surgery may not be required.
For non-cancerous tumors or for cancer that has not spread to other parts of the body, Oncologists work on eliminating the tumor using several different methods. In some cases, surgery may be required for the elimination of the tumor. In some cancers, the tumor may need to be removed surgically, but the tumor itself does not need to be removed, only its surrounding tissue. In other cancers, surgical removal of the tumor may be necessary. In some cancers, only small portions of the tumor may be removed, and the remaining portion of the tumor or skin may not be affected. For cancer that has spread beyond the skin, the tumor may be removed from the entire body, and then the surrounding skin may be removed from the body. Cancer that has spread out of the body may also be removed through surgery, but this surgery may be more invasive and more difficult to perform.
Oncologist’s work in collaboration with Oncology specialists, including Oncologist’s Pathologists. Oncologist’s use various methods to treat cancer patients, such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. They may also work with radiation oncologists and Oncology radiation oncologists to perform the radiation therapy, and other procedures that may be needed to kill or eliminate the cancer cells in the tumor, which may be further spread outside of the tumor. Oncologist’s can also perform surgery to remove the tumor and remove the source of the cancer, although some cancer is not curable by surgery.
Oncologists are also able to perform surgery when the patient has an infection. These infections are treated with antibiotics and they are also able to use surgery to remove the infection from the patient’s body. A large majority of Oncologist’s surgeries are done under general anesthetic. In most instances, Oncologist’s surgeries are performed in hospitals or specialized medical centers, where patients can be kept on bed rest, and monitored closely. Patients that have been through surgery as a result of an infection will be required to stay in a hospital for a period of time, after the surgery. While patients who are on bed rest will not be able to consume solid foods, they are able to consume liquids, but are required to follow a restricted diet, taking liquids and other medications that are needed for their health.
Many Oncologists work together with Oncology Oncologist’s Pathologists to use various kinds of radiation therapies, and surgical techniques to eliminate the source of the cancer. The Oncologist may also perform the surgery and other medical procedures to help the patient recover and recover completely.
