When should you consult with an Oncologist?

An oncologist is consulted when a patient's primary care physician suspects cancer or if any abnormality is  detected after screening

A primary care physician can use a range of diagnostic methods and procedures to screen for cancer and to make a diagnosis. A CT scan, an MRI, and blood tests can all confirm the diagnosis. If testing indicates cancer, the patient's primary care physician may suggest visiting an oncologist.

Procedures and Treatments under Cancer Care

There are several cancer treatment options. The type of therapy you require will depend on the type of cancer you have and how far along it is in its course. For certain cancer patients, there could be just one treatment. But most patients have a combination of treatments, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy and radiation therapy, in addition to surgery.

Cancer treatments can be used as:

  • First line of care: A main treatment's objective is to eradicate the cancer from your body or to destroy its cells. While any cancer treatment can be employed as the initial course of treatment, surgery is the most often utilized primary cancer treatment for the most prevalent kinds of cancer. You could be treated primarily with radiation therapy or chemotherapy if your cancer is especially responsive to such treatments.

  • Adjuvant medical treatment. To reduce the risk of a cancer recurrence, adjuvant therapy seeks to destroy any cancer cells that may remain after the initial treatment. Adjuvant therapy applies to all cancer treatments. Adjuvant treatments that are often used include hormone therapy, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Neoadjuvant therapy refers to the use of similar therapies before the principal treatment to simplify or improve its efficacy.

    • Stage 4: Other organs or parts of your body have been affected by cancer.

    Cervical cancer screening is recommended as of 25 years of age. Breast cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, and prostate cancer screening are recommended as of age 40. Lung cancer screening for smokers is recommended as of 50 years of age.
