Cancer Surgery

In 2009, the NSMC Cancer Center merged with the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and moved to a new location in Danvers. It became the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center. The Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center provides patients with advanced diagnosis and state-of-the-art medical, radiation and surgical oncology services. Surgical procedures can confirm a cancer diagnosis, determine the extent of the cancer, and cure malignant and non-malignant tumors.
