Frequently Asked Questions
What does a surgical oncologist do?
Surgical oncologists are general surgeons with specialty training in procedures for diagnosing, staging (determining the stage of cancer), or removing cancerous growths. They also perform certain types of biopsies to aid in the diagnosis of cancer.
What is the difference between medical oncologist, radiation and surgical oncologist?
A medical oncologist will use chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy to treat your cancer. Radiation therapy will be used to treat your cancer by a radiation oncologist. Tumors are removed surgically by a surgical oncologist.
Does radiation cause weight loss?
Radiation therapy to your head and neck area can make you lose weight because you might have a sore or dry mouth, poor appetite, and taste changes due to treatment.
Can an oncologist diagnose cancer without a biopsy?
Imaging tests like CT scans and MRIs can help detect masses or irregular tissue, but they can't tell the difference between cancerous and non-cancerous cells. The only way to diagnose most cancers is to remove sample of tissue (biopsy) to collect cells for further examination.
