Fields of Oncology

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

  • Surgical oncologists(who treat cancer with surgery)
  • Medical oncologists (who treat cancer with chemotherapy and other medications)
  • Radiation oncologists (who treat cancer with radiation)
  • Hematologist-oncologist (diagnoses and treats blood cancers, such as lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma)
  • pediatric oncologist (Who treats cancer in children)
  • gynecologic oncologist (Who treats gynecologic cancers, such as ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers)
  • Benign brain tumors
