A cancer diagnosis creates many unknowns. Patients, family, and friends soon discover a bewildering array of information, some useful and accurate and some very misleading. Additionally, not all cancer specialists and doctors have the same training, education and experience. An oncologist is generalized name of doctors that specialize in cancer treatment. The great variety of cancer diseases and diversity of patients and situations means there is no one-stop shop for cancer information. Because there are various forms of cancer treatment, this specialty is further refined into surgical oncology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology. Multiple methods will often be needed to effectively treat the cancer, and a treatment team may include doctors in all three specialties.
