Surgery, when used to treat cancer, is a procedure in which a surgeon removes cancer from your body. All of our surgeons at CCL and Parkside Hospital are highly experienced doctors with special training in surgery.
Whether surgery is the most suitable option for you depends on many factors including your cancer type, the size of the cancer, and whether it has spread (stage), where the cancer is in your body and your general health.
Surgery is generally not used for some types of cancer of the blood system (leukaemia), or lymphatic system (lymphoma), because cancer cells might be spread throughout the body. If the cancer is in many areas, surgery won’t get rid of it all.
