Conventionally, most of the medical oncologists are considered as doctors who prescribe chemotherapy. But the job of medical oncologists is much wider than what it is perceived to be.
Cancer is an ever-evolving disease, newer and advanced treatments are being discovered to provide better care to cancer patients. Medical oncologists keep themselves updated with recent advances and suggest the best-fit treatment to the patients.
Overall, the major job of medical oncologists is to manage the complete course of cancer treatment. They correctly diagnose the type and stage of cancer, and suggest the complete treatment plan that includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, speech therapy, counselling, palliative care, etc. depending on the stage and type of cancer.
The medical oncologist ensures the treatment completion and regular follow-up plan to monitor relapse, reoccurrence or spread of the cancer.
