onco surgery is the branch of cosmetic surgery that is specifically focused on oncology, or the study of cancer; it also includes the surgical treatment of solid tumors. The word onco comes from the Greek word meaning “cancerous”. These are very common cancers that can occur in both men and women.
Onco surgery can be used to treat ovarian cancer. The treatment is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure involves removing a cancerous tumor. The surgeon then sews the remaining skin over the cancerous area and closes the wound with stitches.
Other treatments that are offered include breast cancer. A mastectomy is one type of treatment. This is when the doctor removes part of the breast so that the other will remain intact; the doctor may also remove the lymph nodes in order to remove any cancer cells that have already spread into the lymphatic system.
Prostate cancer is also a treatment option for onco surgery. The doctor may choose to perform an excision or incision to remove the cancerous growth from the prostate gland. The doctor may also remove the surrounding lymph nodes to reduce the risk of spreading cancer cells into the lymphatic system.
Onco surgery may be used to treat a variety of other cancers including pancreatic cancer. In this type of treatment, the doctor removes the pancreas and the tissue surrounding the organ. Then, chemotherapy is administered to kill the cancer cells in the pancreas. A catheter is inserted into the belly and the pancreatic juice is harvested so that the doctor can administer chemotherapy treatments.
Onco surgery can be very effective in treating some types of cancers, but it may not be effective at treating certain cancers that are more aggressive or have a very rapid growth rate. If you are diagnosed with an aggressive cancer that has spread into another area of the body, it is often recommended that a bone marrow transplant is done.
Onco surgery is most effective in treating solid tumors. The doctor will generally use general anesthesia and then will resect the tumor while preserving as much of the healthy tissue as possible. The doctor will then close the wound with stitches so that they cannot spread cancer cells into the surrounding tissue.
It is a good idea to have a complete medical history before having onco surgery. This way, you will know if there are any pre-existing diseases that may affect the treatment that is available. There may also be some medications that you need to take while undergoing the treatment. You should also discuss any medications that you are currently taking, especially the medicines that are taken in combination with cancer treatment and any prescription and over-the-counter medicines you are taking.
Cancers may spread very rapidly if not treated. If you do not follow your treatment plan, it may result in the cancer spreading and causing additional health problems.
