What Does A Cancer Specialist Do?

These are physicians, also called oncologists, who are specially trained in detecting and treating cancer. There are three main types of cancer specialists: medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgical oncologists. A medical oncologist prescribes medical treatments such as chemotherapy drugs or biotherapy drugs for the treatment of cancer. The radiation oncologist prescribes radiation treatments to help treat cancer. A surgical oncologist performs surgery to remove tumors and cancerous tissue from the patient’s body. A patient with cancer may require one or more of these treatments. All cancer specialists affiliated with us are board certified or board eligible in their area of expertise.
