About the offer

Ear tumor removal surgery remains the golden standard of ear cancer treatment and is among the most frequent treatment options. The method benefits patients in the early or moderate stages of the disease. Still, before starting ear tumor removal surgery, doctors must ensure that the patient has ear cancer. That’s why they prescribe a list of medical examination procedures to confirm the diagnosis and plan future surgery. After the diagnosis is confirmed, patients must undergo preparations that include a specific diet and medications. For example, the day before the surgery, patients must avoid meals and don’t drink water in the morning before the surgery. The ear tumor removal requires general anesthesia. The whole ear tumor removal surgery takes up to 1 or 2 hours. Surgeons reach the tumor on the outer ear and remove it and any other tissues involved in the cancerous process (usually lymphatic vessels and nodes). In the end, doctors place a drainage and aseptic dressing on the wound. Some stitches also might be required, depending on the tumor’s size. The patient might need up to one week to restore after the surgery and being discharged.
