Treatments Related to Segmental Resection
Many other types of surgery are considered related treatments to segmental resection. For cancers, specifically lung cancer, other types of surgical procedures are used to remove cancerous tumors. Open procedures can remove different portions of the gland or organ.
To use lung cancer as an example, the related treatment “wedge resection” is used to remove less lung tissue than segmental resection; while pneumonectomy is a procedure to remove the entire lobe. Other cancers can be treated with surgeries.
Other nonsurgical treatment options include medications, radiation and chemotherapy. Oftentimes, chemotherapy and radiation are recommended to ensure cancer is completely eliminated.
