ONCOLOGY

Oncology, originating from the Greek word ὄγκος (ónkos) meaning "tumor" or "mass," is a medical field dedicated to the thorough understanding, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Oncologists, who are the specialists in this area, are involved in several key activities:


1. Diagnosing cancer through the study of pathology.

2. Administering treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

3. Providing continuous care for patients after their initial cancer treatment.

4. Offering palliative care for patients with terminal cancer.

5. Considering ethical issues related to cancer treatment.

6. Conducting screenings for the general public or for family members of patients, especially when cancers may have a hereditary link, such as breast cancer.
