What is Oncology?

Oncology is the field of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.

A medical specialist who specializes in the field of cancer or oncology is known as “Oncologist”, “Cancer doctor”, “Oncology Doctor”, “Medical Oncologist” “Cancer Surgeon” or “Cancer Specialist”. Oncologists are further categorized into different specialities of oncology as per their specialization. 

An oncologist would diagnose and treat cancer using the medication, chemotherapy, radiations, targeted immunotherapy, and would also provide primary healthcare to the people suffering from cancer to manage their overall treatment. Cancer treatment requires a different group of doctors so you would see different types of oncologists during treatment. 

An oncologist would devise a patient-specific treatment plan after the pathology reports and other tests which would highlight the type of cancer a person is suffering from, how much cancer has developed, and which organ or part of the body is involved.
