Oncology News

Oncology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and research of cancer. It encompasses several modalities such as medical oncology (use of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other drugs), surgical oncology (surgical removal of tumors), and radiation oncology (use of radiation to target cancer cells). Oncologists not only work on treating cancer but also focus on cancer prevention, early detection, and palliative care to manage symptoms and improve quality of life for patients. With ongoing advances in research, oncology continues to evolve, offering new hope and options for cancer management and care.
