Oncology is the branch of medicine that diagnoses and treats cancer. It examines the organisms which cause cancer and the connection of heredity with cancer. It examines also non-cancerous cells. This makes oncology a multidisciplinary field.

The Oncology department divides into three main branches such as medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology. Each branch has its own research area for cancer treatment. Medical oncology examines the possible uses of chemotherapy, hormone therapy and other pharmacotherapies, radiation oncology examines the use of radiation therapy such as high-energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells and surgical oncology examines the use of surgery to remove cancer cells and other procedures such as a biopsy to help diagnose cancer.

Oncology Diseases

The cancers types examined in the Oncology department are; bone cancer, skin cancer, liver cancer, renal cancer, head and neck cancers, bowel cancer, lymph node cancer (lymphoma), breast cancer, stomach cancer,pancreatic cancer, testicular cancer, prostate cancer, thyroid cancer, uterus oral cancer, biliary tract cancer, uterine cancer , multiple myeloma, gallbladder cancer and leukemia.

At first, the causes of cancer cells are examined. This process is followed by the diagnosis and treatment stages. After all these stages, the chemotherapy process starts when necessary.

Early diagnosis is very important in cancer treatment. Anyone who has cancer symptoms suspicion should visit the oncology department. At this stage, different branches of oncology are available in addition to medical oncology, radiation oncology and surgical oncology . For example, gynecological oncology examines cancer cells for the female reproductive organ. Pediatric oncology studies cancer cells in children. After the symptoms, the diagnosis and treatment process starts. Biopsy procedures are applied in the surgical oncology unit. If necessary, the patient is operated on to remove the tumor.

Oncology Department and Doctors

As mentioned above, oncology is expressed as a branch of science. It is a sub-branch of internal diseases. For this reason, it is essential to do cancer research and studies. As stated, many cancers from the stomach to the bladder are diagnosed and treated. Oncology doctors are also experts in this field. They are also known as "oncologists".

What is Radiotherapy?

Radiotherapy examines the cells. After the detection of cancer cells, the treatment process starts. Radiotherapy is one of the most common methods for cancer treatment. As a special type of energy, radiotherapy is used to destroy cancer cells. It is also used in the early stages of cancer to prevent the proliferation of cancer cells. The cancer stage progress when these cells reproduce and spread to other organs. Radiotherapy has also been used in the treatment of many serious diseases.


Hematology is a branch of science that deals with blood diseases and hematogenous organs such as the spleen and bone marrow. Hematology is a branch of internal diseases and examines diseases in two groups as benign (non-cancerous) and malignant. Examples of benign diseases are anemia, bone marrow deficiency, sickle cell anemia, Mediterranean anemia (thalassemia), multiple myeloma, bleeding and coagulation disorders, thrombocytopenia, and swelling of the lymph nodes. Malignant diseases can be listed as blood cancer or leukemia.

Hematology, like many other medical specialties, is a specialty that requires a multidisciplinary approach. It is necessary to work coordinately with the departments such as medicine and radiation oncology. In addition, it is extremely important to apply an appropriate nutrition program accompanied by a dietitian and provide psychological support to patients with a blood disease. Bone marrow transplantation has an extremely important place in the treatment of hematological diseases. For this reason, it is important to have fully equipped units and an experienced team in the hospital where the treatment is performed.
