Oncology

Oncology is the branch of medicine that deals with tumours, including study of their development, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

Medical Oncology - the treatment of cancer with medicine, including chemotherapy.

Surgical Oncology - the surgical aspects of cancer including biopsy, staging and surgical resection of tumours.

Typically, when a tumour is discovered, a patient will first see a surgeon. The surgeon will perform a biopsy of the tumour and send the tissue to a pathologist for evaluation.

If a cancer diagnosis is made, an oncologist will evaluate the patient to determine the stage of the cancer. Staging usually involves a precise evaluation of the tumour, lymph nodes, and any metastasis, or spread of the disease.
