WHAT IS ONCOLOGY?
Oncology is the part of healthcare that deals with the study and treatment of tumours/ malignancies. Oncology is the study of cancer. The field of oncology has three major areas: medical, surgical, and radiation. A medical oncologist treats cancer using chemotherapy or other medications, such as targeted therapy. A surgical oncologist removes the tumour and nearby tissue during an operation. He or she also performs certain types of biopsies. A radiation oncologist treats cancer using radiation therapy.
Surgery is often the first treatment option if the tumour can be taken out of the body. Sometimes only part of the tumour can be removed. Radiation, chemotherapy, or both might be used to shrink the tumour before or after surgery.
