Could cancer be cured by cutting off the infectious part?

In brief: Yes

But cancer is not an infection, you probably mean cutting off the cancer. If you can remove all the cancer and if it has not spread by that time, it could potentially be cured.
The odds depend a lot on the type and stage of the cancer.
