Oncology is the field of medicine that involves the study, treatment, prevention and diagnosis of cancer. An oncologist is a doctor who treats cancer and provides care to cancer patients.

Depending on the type of cancer or the stage of cancer, an oncologist may use various methods of treatment including:

  • Internal medicine
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Transplants
  • Stem cells
  • Hormone therapy

There are three types of oncologist depending on the treatment techniques they use:

  • Medical oncologists treat cancer using chemotherapy or other medicines
  • Surgical oncologists treat cancer by removing the tumour or cancerous tissue by surgical operation
  • Radiation oncologists treat cancer using radiotherapy
