Surgery is one of the main treatment option for cancer. It can be done alone and in combination with different treatments. Depending on the stage of the cancer and the condition of the patient, it can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
Cancer surgery, a regional treatment, treats only the area where the operation is performed. It is seen as the most effective and easy way to clean the cancer cell in the early stages.
The type of surgery, the general health status, and many factors are taken into consideration to determine which surgery is appropriate for the patient. With the necessary examinations, the patient is prepared for surgery psychologically and physically.
The length of post-hospital stay depends on the condition of the patient and which surgery he / she has undergone. In some cases, the patient is discharged the next day, while in other cases the patient remains in hospital for longer.
During the healing process, there may be complaints such as wounds, bruising and pain. These situations should be shared with the physician and the physician's instructions should be followed.
