About Oncology Consultation

Oncology Consultation

Once a patient has been diagnosed with cancer, the first step in getting treatment is to make an oncology consultation, to discuss the treatment options with a specialist.

An oncologist is a doctor who specializes in treating and diagnosing cancer. Oncologists usually specialize in certain areas of oncology such as radiation oncology, pediatric oncology, and surgical oncology.

The patient will usually attend follow-up consultations to discuss the progress of treatment once it has begun.

Before Oncology Consultation abroad

Ahead of the consultation, the patient should prepare a list of any of the questions that they may have, as well as preparing any relevant medical history.

Patients with complex conditions may benefit from seeking a second opinion before beginning a treatment plan. A second opinion means that another doctor, usually an expert with a lot of experience, will review the patient’s medical history, symptoms, scans, test results, and other important information, in order to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan. When asked, 45% of US residents who received a second opinion said that they had a different diagnosis, prognosis, or treatment plan. Click here to learn more about how to get a second opinion.

How is it performed

The oncologist will devise a treatment plan for the patient and this may include one type of treatment such as radiotherapy, or it may include combined treatments such as chemotherapy and surgery. The oncologist may request a series of tests to be performed on the patient to assess their overall health, in order to help create a treatment plan.

The oncologist will likely organize an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or CT (computed tomography) scan to take images of the cancer.

The oncologist will also schedule follow-up appointments for the patient, as well making appointments for the chosen method of treatment.

Procedure duration

The Oncology Consultation takes 30 to 60 minutes.
