What is a Medical Oncologist?
A medical oncologist specializes in the use of medicines, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormonal therapy to treat cancer. These medicines, usually referred to as chemotherapy, are most often given into a patient’s veins (intravenous), injected under their skin (subcutaneous), or taken by mouth in pill form.
Your medical oncologist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your needs. Please keep in mind that everyone’s treatment plan is unique to them, so patients with the same diagnosis could receive different therapies, be on a different schedule, and experience different side effects. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to your doctor or nurse.
