How do we Diagnose?

To find the cause of symptoms, a surgical oncologist evaluates a person’s medical history, performs a physical examination, and orders diagnostic tests. The examination and tests conducted may vary depending on the symptoms. Examination of a sample of tissue under the microscope is always necessary to confirm a diagnosis of cancer.

We insist on clinical examination and believe that a “Hand Scan is better than a CAT Scan”

Myth: Biopsy or FNAC leads to the spreading of cancer.

If the diagnosis of cancer is confirmed, the surgical oncologist will want to know the stage (or extent) of the disease. Staging is a careful attempt to find out whether cancer has spread and if so, to which parts of the body. Knowing the stage of the disease helps the surgical oncologist plan treatment.
