Surgery: Surgery is a conventional treatment that removes tumors by cutting them out of the body. While the ideal goal is complete removal, this is not always possible. In these cases, palliative surgery may be recommended: removing some, but not all, of the tumor (also known as debulking). Surgery is generally done under anesthesia, and may require postoperative recovery care, such as wound cleaning, changing of bandages, physical therapy, and limiting movements to allow incisions to heal.
