Medical Oncology is the care and treatment of cancers provided by a team that consists of Medical Oncologists and Oncology Nurses. This team plays an important role in the care of cancer patients by providing education to the patients and their families about various forms of cancer and the temporary side effects of cancer treatment.
Hematology is the study of blood and blood-forming tissues and the study of the nature, function, and diseases of the blood and of blood-forming organs. Hematologists often deal with diseases such as anemia, leukemia, clotting disorders like Hodgkin’s Disease, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, etc.
