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.
A nephrologist is a specialist in the medical problems of the kidneys. He is an expert in the different causes of kidney disorders, their consequences and forms of treatment. He can, for example, arrange for and supervise dialysis. This treatment has to be carried out regularly if the kidneys are unable to cleanse the blood of toxins on their own.
The nephrologist also advises patients on points to watch out for in their daily lives, such as the dietary requirements needed to alleviate their illness.
Urology is the science and study of the structure, function and disorders of the urinary organs and the male sexual organs.
The urologist knows about the disorders that can affect these organs, and knows which disorders in another organ of the body can affect the sexual or urinary organs, such as disorders of the prostate and bladder, and kidney stones.
A variety of specialised methods are used to diagnose urological disorders, such as urine analysis, and use of ultrasound, computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The urologist is able to call upon a variety of drugs for treatment. If necessary he will operate to, for instance, disintegrate kidney stones or remove an enlarged prostate via the urinary tract.
