Modern cancer treatment requires input from multiple cancer specialists to develop and apply the best treatment plan for each patient.

  • Diagnostic radiologists and pathologists provide essential information regarding the diagnosis of cancer, the extent of the cancer, and the individual characteristics of each cancer that help to determine the prognosis, the appropriate treatment, and patient’s potential reaction to the treatments.
  • Surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists are the primary treating physicians, often working together to develop a combination of treatments that offer the best outcome for each individual patient.
  • Other physicians specialize in caring for and managing the side effects of the treatment and the cancer that the patient might experience through pain management, physical fitness and rehabilitation, mental and spiritual well-being, natural medicine, and nutrition.
