Oncology is a medical unit that deals with the treatment of cancer. Oncology has three main treatment-based units: medical oncology, radiation oncology, and surgical oncology.
Medical Oncology is a medical unit that provides services for treatment processes and follow-up plans for patients diagnosed with cancer. In medical oncology units, collaboration takes place with specialized health personnel, radiology, radiation oncology, pathology, surgery, nuclear medicine and internal units within a multidisciplinary approach.
Chemotherapy and immunotherapy are common applications in diagnostic and treatment processes in oncology departments. Chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatments are given to patients under the control of specialist doctors. While algologists support patients for pain relief, psychologists and nutritionists take an active part in the treatment process.
