Being relatively new to this, but I start to see that, as many of the veterans said it here before, the surgeon has to lead the treatment as long as the surgery is an option. Chemo and maybe even radiation is only an adjuvant to removal of the cancer. Don't want to reduce the significance of these adjuvant therapies, but many times they are unpredictable and their side effects are severe. Also it is hard to judge the success of the surgery, but it is a much more exact treatment and it gives the patient at least the sense that the cancer is out of your body.
What do you all think?
