Medical oncologists diagnose, treat cancer patients, and conduct effective clinical research. They aim to provide the best results for cancer patients, whether that is a cure, or the comfort and enhancement of quality of life. They provide counselling for patients and their families.
Cancer screening, discussing treatment options with patients, planning and supervising drug treatment modalities, supporting patients and supervising their care, including their post-treatment lives are part of their roles.
Medical oncologists treat patients with cancer that can be treated surgically but that is another treatment that improves their vision.
Medical oncologists treat conditions such as colorectal cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, urological cancer, leukaemia, and melanoma. Common procedures include chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, and biological treatments such as antibodies, small molecules, and immunotherapy.
