What is medical oncology and what conditions does it involve?

Medical oncology is also known as the study of cancer. An medical oncologist is a doctor who manages a person’s care and treatment once he or she is diagnosed with cancer.

Our oncology specialists at Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre take a holistic approach to prevent and treat cancers in patients of all ages.

When do you need to see a medical oncologist?

Doctors and dentists generally refer patients with suspected or confirmed cancer to oncologists. Basic signs and symptoms of cancer consist of, but are not limited to fever, fatigue, weight loss, chills, sweats, new onset of pain, change in cough or onset of a new cough, nausea, vomiting, change in urinary or bowel habits, shortness of breath, sores, lumps, or swelling.

If you experience these symptoms and a general practitioner refers you to specialist treatment, you may wish to enquire with our highly experienced medical oncologists.

Our highly experienced oncologists treat cancer for males and females of all ages. Singapore may use chemotherapy; the use of chemical substances to remove cancer cells, radiation therapy, or targeted therapy with a holistic approach entwined. Removal of tumours and biopsies may also be performed to benefit you.
