If there is no response after the treatment of tumors in the neck with non-surgical methods, or when direct surgery is required, surgeries performed by specialist doctors can be performed. Before neck surgeries are performed, the patient’s disease history and all possible risks should be checked and the surgery should be decided. Neck tumor surgeries, which are usually performed under the influence of general anesthesia, take approximately 5-15 hours. This period varies from person to person and according to the complications that may occur during the surgery.
Cancerous tissues and some of the surrounding healthy tissues are removed. After the surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments are continued if the doctor deems it necessary. How Neck Tumor Surgery Is Performed can be briefly explained like this.
What are the Risks of Neck Tumor Surgery?
One of the issues that everyone is curious about is the question of What Are the Risks of Neck Tumor Surgery? Generally, all surgeries carry certain risks. It is up to the doctor to minimize these risks. At this stage, the specialist doctor you will choose should be an expert and experienced in the field.
All necessary checks should be made before the operation and many factors such as whether the patient is ready for the operation, whether there are other diseases that may cause problems during the operation, and the drugs used should be examined. For example, if the patient is actively using a blood-thinning drug or drugs with blood-thinning effects, the patient should stop these drugs for a while. Because these drugs can cause unnecessary bleeding during surgery.
The risks that may occur may vary according to the patient, the disease, the location, stage and size of the disease. For detailed information on this subject, you can contact us by calling us.

After this process, the patient who goes home should not forget that he had a serious operation and the doctor’s recommendations should be strictly followed. Medications given against the risk of infection should be used on time. In addition, pain may occur after the surgery. These pains can be controlled with painkillers prescribed by the doctor.
