Who Is A Oncologist (Cancer Specialist)?

Oncology is a study related to cancers (abnormal malignant growths). The oncologists, also called cancer specialists, specialize in diagnosing and treating different types of cancers in both men and women.

When to see a Cancer Specialist in Islamabad?

You can go to the top male and female oncologists for cancer treatment in Pakistan. You should also consult an oncologist online if you observe any of the signs or symptoms listed below:

  • Persistent cough

  • Cyst anywhere on your body

  • Any lump under your arms, skin, or anywhere in the body

  • Sudden weight loss or gain

  • Loss of appetite

  • Bowel changes

  • Severe and long-lasting fatigue

  • Fever without any apparent reason

  • Night sweats
