Radiation oncology is a subspecialty of cancer treatment, an important component in the management of cancers especially aggressive types such as prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer and stomach cancer.
A radiation oncologist is a medical professional who has undergone training in using ionizing radiation (such as megavoltage x-rays) in managing and treating cancer and associated conditions. A radiation oncologist works with other lab specialists to perform investigations for the diagnosis of cancer.
In addition to lung, breast, liver and throat cancer, conditions managed by radiation oncologists also include lymphoma, leukemia, osteosarcoma (tumors of the bone and tissues related to it), lymphoma, pituitary tumors and tumors of other glands. Lung, breast, liver and cervical cancer are particularly common malignant conditions treated by oncologists. Radiation oncologists may incorporate chemotherapy in most treatment modalities of cancer. Apart from radiation, chemotherapy and surgical excision are also used to manage cancers. A radiation oncologist should be able to manage effects of radiation such as nausea and vomiting.
