Discover oncology

Clinical oncology relates to any type of cancer treatment that is not surgery, including radiotherapy and systemic therapies. 

Most cancer patients have more than one method of cancer treatment, such as surgery to remove a tumour, followed by radiotherapy. The surgery would be completed by a surgical oncologist (or possibly another type of doctor called an interventional oncologist) and the other treatments would be organised and given by a clinical oncologist and their team.

Discover and explore the many ways clinical oncologists plan and manage patients' cancer treatment.
