Surgery for cancer treatments helps in preventing many types of cancer, and it also plays a part in diagnosing, staging, and supporting cancer treatment.
Historically, surgery was the only treatment for cancer with pioneering surgeons pushing the boundaries of knowledge down through the millennia. Surgery is the modality with the potential to cure most solid cancers. Surgeons have a pivotal role in cancer treatments and research, leading the diagnostic and treatment pathways for most cancers from counselling patients about their diagnosis through to surgery and aftercare. They have also led many of the great advances in cancer research.
