An oncologist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats cancer patients. The three main fields of oncology are: medical, surgical and radiation therapy. Medical oncologists are trained to deal with different types of cancers and seek the best combination of therapy for their patient’s needs. For example, some breast cancers needs surgical removal before chemotherapy, while other times medical oncologists advise chemotherapy before surgery.
All this is based on the type of tumor, patient age and risk factors that the medical oncologists assess. If you need to consult a medical oncologist, then here are the top 5 oncologist in Islamabad based on internet search by users in Islamabad:
