Oncology (Cancer Treatment)
The term oncology literally means a branch of science that deals with tumours and cancers. The word “onco” means bulk, mass, or tumour while “-logy” means study.
Medical professionals who practice oncology are called Cancer specialists or oncologists. These oncologists have several specific roles. They help in the diagnosis of cancer, help in staging cancer and grading the aggressive nature of cancer. Cancers are often managed through discussion at multi-disciplinary cancer conferences where medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and organ-specific oncologists meet to find the best possible management for an individual patient considering the physical, social, psychological, emotional and financial status of the patients.
