Potential Side Effects from Surgery for Carcinoma of Unknown Primary Origin

Surgery can also cause side effects. These depend on what kind of surgery you have. These are some of the possible side effects of surgery.

  • Irritation of the skin where the surgery was done

  • Infection of the incision

  • Bleeding where the incision was done

Your doctor can treat all of these side effects. If you have poor general health and poor nutrition, you may have an increased risk for infection or have problems with wound healing.
