Oncology is the branch of medicine concerned with the treatment of cancer. Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. There are hundreds of types of cancer, commonly named according to the organ or tissue where the cancer develops. There are an estimated 1.7 million new cases of cancer in the United States in 2012. The most common are lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer. Cancer can also spread or metastasize to other areas of the body.
The choice of treatment depends on many factors, such as the size of tumors, biologic process of the cancer cells, the health of the patient and what the patient wants to achieve with treatment. Treatment may include surgery, radiation, and medication, or some combination of those three. The goal of treatment begins with cure, but when cure is not within reach, extending life while controlling symptoms may be the goal.
