Oncology Abbreviations

Oncology is medical specialty concerned with the research, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

An announcement on the homepage indicates that the site will soon be expanded with calendars on dermatology, pneumonology and the remaining areas of internal medicine, including oncology and hematology.

Part of medicine that deals with growths, especially cancerous tumors (malignant tumors) (pronunciation: ON-koo-loo-GIE).

The doctor who is a specialist in this is called an ‘oncologist’. Sometimes there is something before that word, such as ‘haemato-oncologist’ (a lot of knowledge about blood cancer), ‘child oncologist’ (a lot of knowledge about children with cancer ).
