Specialist in oncology and haematology
Oncology is concerned with the development and treatment of cancer. The oncologist is a cancer specialist and specializes in diagnosing and treating cancer. The earlier cancer is detected the better the chances of cure in most cases. Cancers are classified according to the degenerate body cells in solid tumours and malignant systemic diseases. Solid tumours are solid, mostly locally limited tumours that are differentiated into carcinoma or sarcoma. Malignant systemic diseases are known as blood cancer and lymphoma. The most common cancers include breast cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, mouth and throat cancer, oesophageal cancer, malignant melanoma skin cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and blood cancer (leukaemia).
The focus of cancer treatment is the complete destruction and removal of malignant tumours or cells (curative therapy). If this is not possible, oncologists and haematologists attempt to shrink and contain the cancer as much as possible in order to improve and extend the life of cancer patients (palliative therapy). Qualified oncologists now make use of standardised therapeutic regimens for different types of tumours which are individually adapted to the situation of each cancer patient. Oncologists use state-of-the-art procedures in cancer therapy. These include irradiation, chemotherapy, various methods of hyperthermia and immune therapy and surgical removal of the tumour.
