Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Surgery is definitely needed if it is not severe cancer and which has not spread. If slight spread of cancer to lymph nodes, radiotherapy and chemotherapy may be necessary to bring remission. Diabetic has more chance of infections. Blood sugar and blood pressure needs to be controlled before surgery.

hi,thanks for query,this entire treatment depends upon the stage of cancer.Means whether is it localized or it has spread to other areas.Please discuss this with your doctor,depending upon the stage and type of cancer ,various treatment options like surgery,chemotherapy,radiotherapy ,one of them or combination may be suggested as per the need.Heart and sugar problem should not influence the choice of treatment.
wishing you good health.
