What is a cancer specialist?

A cancer specialist is a doctor who specializes in the study, diagnosis, and treatment of cancerous tumors. The study of cancerous tumors is called oncology. An oncologist not only treats cancer but provides post-treatment care to patients. There are different types of oncologists - medical, surgical, radiation, gynecological, pediatric, and hematologist.

What are the treatments for cancer?

Cancer can be cured by specialists using a variety of treatments. The treatment procedure and plan depends on the type of cancer a patient has. The condition can be treated using cancer surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow transplant, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted drug therapy, and more.

There are various different types of cancer. However, some very common organs where cancerous tumors occur are:

  • Breast

  • Bladder

  • Lung

  • Prostate

  • Lung

  • Thyroid

  • Pancreatic

What should you look for in a cancer specialist?

Usually, your primary health care provider may refer you to a cancer specialist. But because the field of cancer is so vast and complex, you should be able to find someone you can trust.

While choosing a cancer specialist, you should see whether the doctor is open to you or not. He/she should be able to patiently listen to you and answer all your queries. A cancer specialist would provide medical care to the patient throughout the course of treatment. You should check the doctor’s qualifications, consider how much training he/she has had, how much experience does the doctor hold among other things.
