Oncology is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and after-care of benign and malignant tumours and blood diseases. The treatment method used for a tumour depends on the results of the examination. Depending on the case, drug treatments involving chemotherapy and/or operative removal of the tumour may be necessary. Radiotherapy may also be given, if necessary. In the case of blood diseases, the blood will be tested in the laboratory and the appropriate treatment started.
The affiliated centres and practices of Klinik Im Park offer a wide range of oncological and haematological treatments. The interdisciplinary networking of the the centre's doctors is key to ensuring the success of the treatment of cancerous diseases. The most effective treatment strategy is developed and planned for each individual patient by oncology boards consisting of specialists in oncology, surgery, radiology and nuclear medicine, and, depending on the affected organ, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, gynaecologists and urologists.
Oncology is the study of a variety of tumours, namely the various cancers that can affect a human being. The word 'cancer' covers approximately 150 variations of one disease, the characteristic of which is the uncontrolled division of cells of an organ or tissue. Cancers of the breast, lung, intestine and prostate gland must be the best-known and most common. For a long time now, breast cancer has been the most common cancer to affect women, whilst men suffer most from lung cancer. The symptoms of cancer, as well as the chances of recovery from it, vary widely and depend on the structure, size and location of the tumour.
If cancer is suspected, the oncologist will initiate a series of tests. The results of these tests determine the further course of action. The oncologist will decide, for example, which drug should best be used in chemotherapy, or whether it might be better to remove a tumour surgically. In some cases, the oncologist will arrange for radiotherapy, where he will work closely with the radio-oncologist/radiotherapist, a specialist in radiotherapy.
He also treats the symptoms that accompany cancer, such as pain. He monitors the patient's recovery and carries out further tests.
