Cancer Treatments

The type of treatment provided to people diagnosed with cancer will depend on the type of cancer they have and the treatment plan which is prepared by the health professionals caring for them.

Patients may receive several different types of cancer treatment.

Cancer treatment falls broadly into three main areas:

  1. Surgery: this is known as surgical oncology
  2. Radiotherapy : this is known as radiation oncology
  3. Cancer drugs and other therapies: this falls into medical oncology or haemato-oncology, depending on the type of cancer.
