When you’ve developed cancer, cells that make up your tissues and organs are abnormally growing and dividing. Under normal circumstances, cells reproduce in an orderly fashion to replace old cells, maintain tissue health, and repair injuries.
When the natural growth process becomes disrupted, cells divide too much and too fast, forming a cellular mass, or tumor.
When the tumor is confined to a few cell layers and doesn’t invade surrounding tissues or organs, it’s diagnosed as benign. By contrast, if the tumor spreads to surrounding tissues or organs, it’s considered malignant, or cancerous.
Dr. Rincon performs surgery to remove cancerous tumors and the immediate surrounding tissue that’s been affected.
Dr. Rincon understands that early detection of breast cancer is key to successful treatment.
Most women with breast cancer have some type of surgery. Operations for local treatment include breast conservation surgery, mastectomy, and axillary (armpit) lymph node sampling and removal. Women may also decide to have breast reconstruction surgery. The reconstruction may occur at the same time as the tumor removal or at a later point.
Esophageal surgery addresses cancer of the esophagus, in which a malignant tumor grows in the lining of the esophagus -- the tube that carries food from the mouth down into the stomach. Dr. Rincon helps treat esophageal cancer by surgically removing cancerous tissues.
