Oncology or carcinology or oncology is the medical field of study, diagnosis and treatment of cancerous diseases.
The management of oncology is a cross-functional, multidisciplinary approach involving many specialists:
- Medical oncologists (in charge of chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy),
- Cancer surgeons in charge of removing cancerous tumors,
- Radiotherapists in charge of treatment with ionizing radiation,
- Anatomopathologists in charge of studying the tissues removed.
Medical oncologists have a thorough knowledge of cancer mechanisms and the mode of action of the medications used to treat them, as well as the eventual setbacks associated with these treatments.
They manage the care of patients suffering from cancer.

There are many different ways to treat cancer: surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, biotherapies or targeted therapies and oral therapies.
may be used alone or in combination with other local cancer treatments to remove the tumor, associated lymph nodes and any metastasis. Surgery is often combined with other treatment modalities, such as radiotherapy or medical treatments.
is a treatment involving the administration of drugs that act on cancer cells by either destroying them or preventing them from multiplying. There are many chemotherapy drugs, often combined to increase the effectiveness of the treatment. They can be administered by infusion, injection or in tablet form.
is a local treatment for cancer. It uses radiation to destroy cancer cells by blocking their ability to multiply.
is a treatment that consists of treating the body with substances that will boost its immune defenses in order to fight against various diseases, in particular certain cancers and degenerative diseases.
for cancer aims to block the stimulation of cancer cells by hormones.
is a therapeutic method based on the use of living organisms or substances taken from living organisms as opposed to chemotherapy, where synthetic substances are used. “Targeted therapies” are therapies aimed at molecular targets that are present and believed to play a role in the neoplastic transformation of the cancer cell. It is a treatment with drugs that aim to slow down or block the growth of the cancer cell.
