The ability of cancer to affect the other tissues and its ability to spread limits the effectiveness of treatment. The surgical margin along with a free margin must be removed. The dimensions of free margin depend on the type of cancer and the method by which it is removed. It can be as little as 1mm or more than 5mm.
