Medical oncology is a way to fight cancer using medicine, and is often combined with surgery or radiation therapy to reduce or eliminate cancers. Medical oncology works well to fight cancers of the blood (hematology) and cancers that have spread throughout the body, as well as tumors.
Chemotherapy is the most common type of medical oncology treatment. Often called “chemo,” this cancer treatment can be given as an injection or a pill, but most are intravenous (IV). Memorial Cancer Institute is on your side with every approved chemotherapy treatment available, as well as access to some of the newest and most innovative chemo treatments through clinical trials.
