What Is Oral Cancer Surgery?

Surgery is a common treatment for oral cancer. It’s done to remove as much of the cancer as possible. You have to be healthy enough to have surgery for it to be a good option for you. Some oral cancers can’t be removed with surgery. It depends on where the tumor is, how big it is, and if it has spread beyond where it first started. Sometime reconstructive surgery is needed too. This is done to repair the damage caused by taking out the tumor. It can help restore the way your body works and looks. Your doctor will talk with you about your options.
