Surgery

Surgery is used to remove the cancer / tumour from the affected area of your body. The type of surgery will depend on the type of cancer.

Before surgery, you will need to be assessed to ensure you are fit enough to undergo any procedure. You will also be required to provide consent.

Not everyone is suitable for surgery. Your consultant will discuss this with you when appropriate.

More information on surgery for each type of cancer is available in the Cancer types section of this website.
