Surgery for Solid tumours in Children

Paediatric general surgery hospital in Bangalore

Surgery is a common treatment for solid tumours in children, and it is often the first treatment tried and may be the only treatment needed. Surgery can be used to remove the tumour and a margin of healthy tissue around it. Surgery can also be used to biopsy the tumour when a small tissue sample is removed for testing. Surgery can be used to debulk the tumour, which is when a large portion of the tumour is removed. Surgery can also relieve symptoms caused by the tumour, such as obstruction of the airway or gastrointestinal tract.

Pre-procedure: 

Several things must be done before surgery for a solid tumour in a child can occur. The child will need a complete physical examination by their doctor, which will help determine if the child is healthy enough for surgery. The child will also need to get blood tests and imaging studies of the tumour. The child will need to be fasting for some time before surgery, so they do not vomit during or after the surgery. The child will also need to be given a sedative to help them relax before surgery.

Procedure: 

The surgery itself is relatively simple. The child will be given general anaesthesia so that they are asleep during the surgery. The surgeon will make an incision in the area of the tumour. The tumour will then be removed, along with a margin of healthy tissue around it. The incision will be closed with sutures or staples. The child will then be taken to the recovery room, where they will be closely monitored.

After-procedure: 

After the surgery, the child will be taken to the recovery room, where they will be closely monitored. The child will be given pain medication as needed. The child will need to stay in the hospital for a few days so that their progress can be monitored. The child will need to have follow-up appointments with their doctor to ensure the tumour has not returned. Visit our paediatric general surgery hospital in Bangalore for the best treatment.
