Medical Oncology
Medical oncology deals with the treatment of cancer with chemotherapeutic drugs, biological agents and therapies that work with the patient’s immune system. This speciality is related to surgical and radiation oncology.

Radiation Oncology
Radiation oncology is the treatment of cancer with radiation. It works by using energy waves to damage the DNA in cancer cells, so that they are killed or no longer able to multiply. Sometimes, radiotherapy is given together with chemotherapy to maximise effectiveness. When a small dose of radiation is given each day over several weeks, normal, healthy cells recover from the radiation but cancer cells are not able to.
It is typically a painless treatment, similar to having an x-ray, and is only delivered to the part of the body being treated.
