An oncologist is a doctor who specialises in the treatment of cancer. There are different types of oncologists like medical oncologists (for chemotherapy), surgical oncologists (for surgeries) and radiation oncologists (for radiation therapy). Different oncologists specialise in the treatment of different types of cancer, depending on the organ where the cancer began.
