What is an Oncologist?

An oncologist is a doctor who specialises in the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of people with cancer or suspected cancer.  There are three main types of oncologists; medical oncologists who coordinate patient care, surgical oncologists who specialise in the surgical management of tumours, and radiation oncologists who use radiation therapy in the treatment of cancer.
