One of the treatments you may be offered is surgery to remove the cancer completely. This is not an option for all cancers but if your doctor offers you surgery for breast, colorectal, gynaecological, prostate, upper gastric and skin cancers these can be treated at the Whittington. More complex surgeries for lung, renal or bladder are usually referred to our partner hospitals at UCLH and Royal Free.
You can still be referred back to the Whittington following your surgery for any subsequent treatments or follow up and recovery care.
