Cancer Surgery deals with the removal of malignant tissue or organs from the body.  These surgeries are often combined with other adjunct  therapy such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.  There are times when surgical excision is all that is necessary to obtain a cure.  Close observation afterward is mandatory. In addition to removal of the affected organ, removal of neighboring lymph nodes is also important.  Removal of these nodes may not only be therapeutic or beneficial, but may also be diagnostic. It helps to identify those patients that may benefit from additional modes of therapy.
