Oral Cancer Surgery
Tumor resection:?An operation to remove a tumor is called a tumor resection. In this procedure, some normal tissue surrounding the tumor, known as a margin, is also removed in an attempt to eradicate as many cancer cells as possible. A small tumor that is easily reached may often be removed through the mouth. For tumors that are larger or harder to reach, an incision may be required in the neck, face, or jawbone.
