What is Surgical Oncology?

Surgical oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the surgical management of cancer. It involves the diagnosis, treatment and management of various types of cancer through surgical procedures. Oncology surgeons are specialised surgeons who have received extensive training in cancer surgery and work closely with other specialists in the field of oncology to provide comprehensive cancer care.

Who is a Surgical Oncologist?

An oncology surgeon is a specialist surgeon who specializes in diagnosing and treating cancer through surgical procedures. These specialists have extensive knowledge and expertise in various surgical techniques including minimally invasive surgeries, robotic surgeries and laparoscopic surgeries. They work collaboratively with other oncology specialists including medical and radiation oncologists, to provide the best possible care for their patients.

When Should You Consult a Surgical Oncologist?

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or have symptoms that suggest you may have cancer, you should consult a surgical oncologist. Surgical oncologists are trained to diagnose cancer early and provide appropriate treatment options that can improve your chances of successful recovery.

Some common symptoms that may indicate the presence of cancer include:

1. Unexplained weight loss
2. Persistent cough
3. Abnormal bleeding or discharge
4. Changes in bowel or bladder habits
5. Unexplained pain or fatigue

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention promptly.

What Medical Conditions Do Surgical Oncologists Treat?

Surgical oncologists are trained to treat various types of cancer using surgical procedures. Some common types of cancer treated by surgical oncologists include:

1. Breast cancer
2. Lung cancer
3. Colon cancer
4. Liver cancer
5. Pancreatic cancer
6. Prostate cancer
7. Ovarian cancer

What Are the Different Types of Procedures Conducted by Surgical Oncologists?

Surgical oncologists use various surgical techniques to treat cancer. Some common types of procedures include:

1. Biopsy: A biopsy is a procedure where a small tissue sample is removed from the tumour for testing. This helps in identifying the type of cancer and determining the stage of cancer.
2. Curative surgery: Curative surgery is a procedure that removes the entire tumour from the body, along with any surrounding tissue that may contain cancerous cells.
3. Palliative surgery: Palliative surgery is a procedure performed to relieve symptoms caused by cancer, such as pain or difficulty in breathing.
4. Lymph node dissection: Lymph node dissection involves removing the lymph nodes near the tumour to check if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
5. Reconstruction surgery: Reconstruction surgery is a procedure done to restore the appearance or function of the affected body part after the removal of a tumour.

In addition to treating cancer, surgical oncologists may also perform diagnostic procedures such as biopsies to confirm a cancer diagnosis.

How Can I Consult a Surgical Oncologist?

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or have symptoms that suggest you may have cancer, you can consult a surgical oncologist by scheduling an appointment with a hospital or clinic that specialises in cancer care.

To consult with a surgical oncologist, you will need a referral from your medical oncologist or radiation oncologist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between surgical oncology and medical oncology?

Surgical oncology focuses on the surgical treatment of cancer, while medical oncology deals with systemic treatments such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy.

A surgical oncologist may use diagnostic imaging tests like MRI, CT scan and PET scan to identify the location and size of cancerous tumours.

A surgical oncologist may perform procedures like tumour resection, lymph node biopsy and reconstructive surgery.

An onco surgeon works collaboratively with other specialists such as medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and pathologists to develop a treatment plan tailored to each patient's needs.

Recovery time varies depending on the type and extent of surgery performed. In some cases, patients may require several weeks of rest before returning to normal activities.

Risks and complications can vary depending on the location and extent of surgery but some potential risks may include bleeding, infection or damage to surrounding tissues or organs.

Treatment options are based on a variety of factors including the type and stage of cancer, the patient's overall health and their individual preferences and goals for treatment.

Other treatments may include chemotherapy or radiation therapy, as well as newer therapies such as immunotherapy or targeted therapies.

In some cases, surgery may be sufficient to remove cancerous tumours and prevent a recurrence. However, in other cases, surgery may be combined with other treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Pain management is an important aspect of cancer care and surgical oncologists work collaboratively with pain management specialists to ensure patients receive appropriate treatment for their symptoms.
