Tumours are abnormal growths which can either be cancerous or non-cancerous. Cancerous tumours are treated by Medical Oncologists - medical practitioners specialising in the care of cancer patients. The diagnosis of cancer is but one of many facets of medical oncology. Medical Oncologists focus on the administration of drug therapy, usually associated with cancer, known as “chemotherapy”.
Battling cancer is emotionally, physically and psychologically draining for both the patient and carer. At Gleneagles Hospital, Medical Oncologists work with Surgeons, Radiotherapists, Specialty Nurses and Counsellors to provide a holistic care environment for our patients.
