After Surgery: Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

From Dr. Gibson

“Every cancer has its own personality and just because it might fit under a label, that doesn’t always tell you with perfect certainty how it’s going to behave over time. That’s why we study it carefully to try to predict it’s behavior. Then, it requires aggressive treatment and a lot of long-term follow-up in order to get to know the personality of that cancer and try to tailor treatment to it specifically.”
