Surgery is used to both diagnose and treat cancer. In a diagnostic surgery, a tissue sample is collected to see if cancer is detected and if so, what type of cancer it is.
If cancer has not yet spread to other parts of the body, surgery is often the best treatment option. Surgery is used for a variety of cancer types. At Johnston Health, we have surgeons specializing in oncology surgery who will help find the best treatment for you.
