- For non-metastatic disease curative surgery gives good results, when done in a tertiary care center.
- Adenocarcinoma of duodenum has a comparative low 5-year disease free survival rate after surgery.
- Although surgical resection of small intestinal cancer plays an important role in the treatment, 5 yr survival rate is low even after surgery.
- Small intestine resection: In this operation, surgeon removes the piece of intestine that has the tumor and some of the normal tissue on each side of the tumor.
- Palliative operation: If small intestine cancer has spread too far in the abdomen, the surgeon will do a palliative operation.
- The goal of palliative resection is to decrease symptoms such as abdominal pain and abdominal distension.
- For tumors of jejunum and ileum and wide local excision to remove the tumor may be done.
- For duodenal cancer Whipple's procedure may be done.
- Surgery is usually reserved for patients with resectable tumors.
- Tumors for which surgery can not be done, palliative surgery is another option.
