General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on surgical treatment of abdominal organs, e.g. intestines including esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, gallbladder र bile ducts, र often the thyroid gland (depending on the availability of head र neck surgery specialists) र hernias.
In Australia, Canada, the US र the UK, general surgeons are responsible for breast care, including the surgical treatment of breast cancer. In most other countries, breast care falls under Obstetrics र Gynecology र its sub-specialty of Mastology (or Senology).
