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. They also provide palliative care to patients diagnosed with cancer who have failed to respond to other forms of treatment.
The oncologists (ماہر سرطان) provide care to cancer patients. They can;
Diagnose the type of cancer and its stage
Design a treatment plan for each patient keeping in view the benefit-risk ratio
Manage the patient’s symptoms during and after the treatment sessions
Cancer specialists (Mahir-e-sartan) work in close collaboration with other healthcare providers like pathologists, radiologists, and pharmacists to provide optimum treatment to patients. They are experts in the treatment of tumor growth in all parts of the body including, cancers of the skin, blood, thyroid, lungs, mouth, etc. Oncologists in Lahore specialize in any of the specific types of cancer to provide diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention to the patients suffering from the cancer of their specialty.
The three major areas of oncology based on the treatment methods include;
Medical oncology: This is the field of oncology that involves the treatment of cancer with pharmacological therapy (chemotherapy), targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and hormonal therapy. Medical oncologists are considered the primary healthcare providers for patients diagnosed with cancer.
Radiation oncology: This area of oncology deals with radiation therapy to kill cancerous cells and shrink tumor growth. High-energy radiations are administered in a highly controlled environment, to target the tumor, before or after the chemotherapy.
Surgical oncology: This area of oncology involves surgical procedures to remove the tumor and the nearby healthy tissues to treat cancer and prevent its recurrence.
Clinical oncology: Clinical oncology focuses on cancer treatment using both systematic therapies and radiation. It encompasses all forms of cancer therapies except surgeries to remove tumor growth.

Sudden weight loss or gain
