Surgical Oncology

Surgical oncology is the branch of surgery which focuses on the surgical treatment and management of a variety of tumors including breast cancer, melanoma, endocrine tumors and colorectal cancer.

Surgery is usually just the beginning of cancer treatment. Medical and surgical oncologists may work closely together to provide the best care for individuals.
