Cancer is one of the dreadful diseases one can ever encounter in life, though the positive aspect is, India has a community of renowned doctors who act as a support system to help us cure cancer and decline the death rate. Hats off to the best oncologists our country is proud of and also the conviction our citizens show in them, so patients don’t have to move out abroad for treatments. There are three major types of oncologists:

  1. Medical oncologist – these oncologist perform chemotherapy and immunotherapies and also performs follow up sessions after treatments.
  2. Radiation oncologist – these doctors perform radiation therapy to kill cancerous cells when high intensity X-rays are targeted to the affected areas,
  3. Surgical oncologist-  these doctors remove cancerous tumors and nearby affected tissues through surgery in cases that need urgent removal and when there is no time to go through radiation therapies.

Since we are discussing about radiation oncologist, let us brief what radiation therapy is?  Radiation therapy is a treatment in which high intensity beams of X- rays or photon beams are targeted to lessen the size of cancerous tumors, patients go through various sessions of the therapy till they are completely cured. This type of therapy is external therapy. The second one being internal radiation therapy – in this a radioactive material of a grain size is implanted in the affected area either permanently or temporarily, that gradually annihilate the malignant cells.
