There are a number of things that influence the candidacy of an individual for surgery, such as the type, size, location, grade, and stage of the tumor, as well as general health factors such as age, physical fitness, and other coexisting medical conditions the patient may have.
Frequently, surgery will be performed in conjunction with other treatment options, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or hormone therapy
Most of these procedures may be delivered either before surgery (neoadjuvant therapy) or after surgery (adjuvant therapy), and are intended to prevent the regrowth, spreading, or recurrence of cancer.
