Cancer Surgery

Removing a tumor is a common type of cancer surgery. This may also be called a "resection" or "excision." Your doctor usually takes out the tumor and some of the healthy tissue near it. The tissue around the tumor is called the margin. Tumor removal generally requires a larger incision, or cut, than a biopsy.
