Oncology is a medical specialty that studies the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth which have the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.  An oncologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats people with cancer.  Since most cancers are treated with a combination of therapies you could see several different kinds of oncologists during the course of your treatment – a medical, surgical and/or radiation oncologist.
