Can cancer cells be removed surgically?

Hello,

It is possible for a surgeon to completely a tumor where malignancy has been found.
I hope this helps.

Thanks! Blessings!

Wow! I certainly understand the trepidation that you have in regards to general anesthesia during your son's surgery. I have a 10 year old son and honestly, I would feel the same way.

Fortunately, in today's hospitals and surgical centers, highly trained professionals use a wide variety of safe, modern medications and extremely capable monitoring technology. An anesthesiologist is a doctor who specializes in giving and managing anesthetics — the medicines that numb an area of the body or help a person fall asleep and stay asleep. A pediatric anesthesiologist has additional specialized training that certifies him or her to care for children.

You can request to speak to your son's anesthesiologist directly and ask him or her specific questions that you may have and I'm he or she will be able to help you understand the process more clearly.

I hope this helps. I pray for safe surgery for your son. Mom, be calm I believe your son will be fine. Peace and Blessings!

Hello,

First, I want to say please try to remain calm. Cancer can only be diagnosed based on appropriate testing (i.e., imaging and pathology). I recommend that you make an appointment with a surgeon and allow him/her to exam the growth on your leg. Based on the examination, if further investigation is needed, that surgeon will order tests or imaging that will give him/her a deeper insight into the kind of growth it is. For now, just consider it a growth.

Once again, remain calm, but please make an appointment to see a surgeon soon. Have an awesome day and God bless.

Hello,

I don't think you would need a third opinion, unless there is something that you distrust about the information that you have already received. If your sister has already been diagnosed, she would only need to see a surgical oncologist if a breast surgery is necessary. I pray that her treatment goes well and that her recovery is smooth. May the blessings and divine healing of God accompany her medical treatment.
