Medical Oncology is a discipline which deals with the systemic therapy of cancer including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapies, supportive care and bone marrow transplantation.
Chemotherapy is a method of cancer treatment in which anticancer drugs are given intravenously, by injections, or by mouth. Chemotherapy is often used in conjunction with radiation therapy and surgery, as a multimodality therapy. Anticancer drugs are special drugs which can only be prescribed by a person who has been trained in this specialty. These may cause certain serious side effects, which may become life threatening if not detected in time and treated promptly. In the last two to three decades chemotherapy has made great impact in the overall survival of many cancers.
