Surgical oncologists perform surgery to diagnose, stage, treat and manage cancer symptoms. Not only do they remove tumors, cancer cells and growths, they also take necessary measures to avoid the potential spread of cancer. When considering surgery, your doctor will factor in the size, type, location, grade and stage of your tumor. Other factors include age, fitness level and existing medical conditions.

Common conditions treated:

  • Adrenal tumors

  • Breast cancer

  • Colorectal cancer

  • Melanoma
