A brief intro to Oncologists

Who is an Oncologist?

Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Doctors who specialize in the field of oncology are called oncologists and are responsible for saving thousands of lives every year. With 150,000 people diagnosed with cancer annually, the demand for qualified oncologists is high.

Cancer (کینسر) can strike people from any age and anywhere in the body. Therefore these specialists have to cater to a wide range of patients. Moreover, the prognosis of the patient also varies, depending on the type and stage of the disease. In terminal cases, oncologists help in the management of the disease, as treatment is impossible.

Some oncologists are also trained in hematology (ہیماتولوجی), which is the study of blood, its disorders and associated structures like bone marrow. Hence, not all patients who visit an oncologist have cancer.
