The scope of practice of an oncologist is largely directed by the stage of the malignancy (cancer). For example, the treatment of early-stage cancer may involve surgery or radiation, while advanced-stage cancer may require chemotherapy.These specialists work as part of a multidisciplinary team which may include a pathologist, radiologist, primary care physician, geneticist, palliative care specialist, oncology nurse, and organ-specific oncologists.
Oncologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. There are three main types of oncologists.
- Track 1-1Benign brain tumors
- Track 1-2Radiation oncologists (who treat cancer with radiation)
- Track 1-3Hematologist-oncologist (diagnoses and treats blood cancers, such as lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma)
- Track 1-4pediatric oncologist (Who treats cancer in children)
- Track 1-5gynecologic oncologist (Who treats gynecologic cancers, such as ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers)
In simple terms oncology is the field of medicine that is dedicated to the study and management of tumors or cancers. Oncologists are doctors who specialize in the treatment of cancer. Sometimes oncologists further specialize in a specific type of cancer or a specific treatment method.

An abnormal mass of tissue that usually does not contain cysts or liquid areas. Solid tumors may be benign (not cancer), or malignant (cancer). Different types of solid tumors are named for the type of cells that form them. Examples of solid tumors are sarcomas, carcinomas, and lymphomas. Leukemias (cancers of the blood) generally do not form solid tumors.
Different types of solid tumors are named for the type of cells that form them. Examples of solid tumors are sarcomas and carcinomas. We treat all types of malignant (cancer) solid tumors that occur in children and adolescents including:
- Track 3-1Ewing sarcoma
- Track 3-2Neuroblastoma
- Track 3-3Retinoblastoma
- Track 3-4Osteosarcoma

Oncology Nursing is a field involving practice encompasses the roles of direct caregiver, educator, consultant, administrator, and researcher. Oncology and cancer nursing extends to all care delivery settings where clients experiencing or at risk for developing cancer receive health care, education, and counselling for cancer prevention, screening and detection. It also involves appropriate screenings and other preventative practices, symptom management, care to retain as much normal functioning as possible, and supportive measures upon end of life.
- Track 5-1Cancer & lifestyle connection
- Track 5-2Preventive oncology
- Track 5-3Community oncology nursing
- Track 5-4Keeping the patient comfortable
- Track 5-5Taking regular tests
Nuclear medicine is a branch of medicine that uses radiation to provide information about the functioning of a person's specific organs or to treat disease. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues.
Medical Oncology is a type of treatment where Cancer cells are treated with chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, and targeted therapy.

- Track 6-4Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
- Track 6-5Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)
- Track 6-6Brachytherapy
- Track 6-7Superficial x-ray radiation therapy (SXRT
- Track 6-8Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT)
Researchers have learned a lot about how cancer genes work. But many cancers are not linked with a specific gene. Cancer likely involves multiple gene mutations. Moreover, some evidence suggests that genes interact with their environment. This further complicates our understanding of the role genes play in cancer.
Researchers continue to study how genetic changes affect cancer development. This knowledge has led to improvements in cancer care, including early detection, risk reduction.

- Track 7-4Opportunities in Cancer Biology Research
- Track 7-5Cancer Genomics
A cancer biomarker refers to a substance or process that is indicative of the presence of cancer in the body. A biomarker may be a molecule secreted by a tumor or a specific response of the body to the presence of cancer. Genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, glycomic, and imaging biomarkers can be used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and epidemiology. Ideally, such biomarkers can be assayed in non-invasively collected bio fluids like blood or serum.
One of the most well-known cancer biomarkers is Prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, and elevated levels of PSA in men tend to signal for prostate cancer. Actually, cancer biomarkers are more than just a signal of the disease, and have many roles in the fight against cancer.
- Track 8-1diagnostic (screening) biomarker
- Track 8-2prognostic biomarker
- Track 8-3stratification (predictive) biomarker
Cancer research and metabolomics and has become an important application in its own right—cancer metabolism on a system-wide scale. There have been numerous discoveries and publications focused on understanding the mechanisms of carcinogenesis and proliferation, as well as the identification of putative biomarkers in biofluid and biopsy samples. With the potential to measure the phenome on a system-wide level, metabolomics has become the tool of choice, complementing genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics in the field of oncology and advancing the understanding of cellular transformation.
Cancer cells and their metabolic regulation rely on a variety of metabolic fuels and nutrients. In cancer cells, metabolism is dramatically altered relative to that of normal cells, supporting accelerated cell proliferation, adaption to the tumor microenvironment, and survival.
