Oncology is the study of Cancer which is also known as Carcinoma. It is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and cancer treatment. Oncology is the branch of medical science which deals with study and treatments of tumors. Oncologists may divide on the basis of the type of treatment provided to treat the cancer. Molecular oncology is the study of chemistry of cancer and tumor cell at its molecular cell. The study involves techniques ranging from genomics, tumour imaging, computational biology, etc. Radiation oncology is treatment with radiation, a process called radiotherapy. Surgical oncology is the branch of oncology which deals with the surgery applied to oncology. Gynecologic oncology is focuses on different cancers of the female reproductive system. Cancers which are also known as tumor are often managed through discussion on multi-disciplinary oncology conferences where medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, radiation oncologist, pathologist, radiologist and organ specific oncologists meet to find the best possible management for an individual patient considering the physical, social, psychological, emotional and financial status of the patients. It is very important for oncologists to keep updated of the latest advancements in oncology, as changes in management of cancer are quite common

Cancer is based on the location of cancer cells occur in particular organ. There are more than 200 different types of cancer diagnosed. Among them Lung cancer, breast cancer are the most common cancer diagnosed cancer in 2015. Apart from these prostate cancer, colon cancers, bladder cancer, breast cancer are the most common type cancer. The rare types of cancers are which affect the bone known as Bone Cancer. Depending upon the location of cancer the causes, symptoms and method of treatments varies. Carcinoma, Sarcoma, leukemia, lymphoma and melanoma are the types of cancer found in different organs.

The formation of cancer cells from normal cells is called carcinogenesis. The changes at different levels like cellular, genetic and epigenetic that ultimately proceed a cell to uncontrolled cell division is the process of carcinogenesis. Mutation, epimutation of genetic material of normal cells, cell proliferations causes the carcinogenesis. When the genetic information (DNA/RNA) of an organism is changed in a particular stable manner the process is called mutagenesis. Mutagenesis may arise due to natural mutagens or artificial mutagens that induce changes to the DNA. Photo carcinogen is a substance which causes cancer following illumination. Substance that counteracts the effects of a carcinogen or inhibits the development of cancer is known as Anti Carcinogens which is also a part of cancer cure. Adenocarcinoma a malignant tumor formed from glandular structures in epithelial tissue.

Cancer cells are those cells whose cell division and growth is unregulated. When the natural killer cells fail to recognize them, they start malignant. When cancer cells start spread from one part to another it is called metastasis. Tumor cell starts its growth in tumor microenvironment which included blood cell, immune cells, fibroblasts, lymphocytes etc. Symptoms of different cancers are depending upon the location of tumor. Cancer stem cells are stem cells which have the ability to give rise all type of cancer cells. Tumor immunology is a branch of immunology that studies interactions between the immune system and cancer cells. Tumor is classified according to the most differentiated cells with the exception of carcinomas.

A cancer biomarker can be a process substance that indicates the presence of cancer in the body. It may be a molecule secreted by tumor cells or a particular response of the body because of the presence of cancer. Biomarkers may genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, glycomic, or imaging. They can be used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, medicine, epidemiology of cancer. Those biomarkers that are particularly associated with mutations offer a quantitative way to determine when individuals are predisposed to particular types of cancers. Mutations of genes like BRCA1 and BRCA2 are advanced breast cancer biomarkers. AFP is the biomarker for Liver Cancer. BCR-ABL is biomarker used for blood cancer.

Tumor pathology deals with the pathology reports that contain the cancer examining cells and tissues. Pathology reports give the information about the types of tumor or cancer. Weather the tissue or cell is cancerous or not, where the cancer started, different types of cancer such as melanoma, carcinoma, lymphoma.is determined by the pathology reports. For classification, management and diagnosis of cancers like non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia Flowcytometry can be used.
Cancer screening is the detection of cancer before the symptoms appear. This may involve blood tests, urine tests, other tests, or medical imaging. Early detection and subsequent treatments are the benefits of cancer screening. Screening may lead to false positive or false negative result. Mammography is the screening method of breast cancer. Likewise Pap test is the method which is used for cervical cancer; colonoscopy is used for bowel cancer, PSA based screening is used for prostate cancer detection. There is some possible harm that can affect to normal cells like X-ray images, harmful ionizing radiations.

Cancer prognosis gives us the information about the percentage of people who survive a certain type of cancer for specific amount of time. There are different ways to measure and report survival and different types of cancer survival statistics. Cancer survival rates are supported the research by giving cancer information gathered from about hundreds or thousands of individuals with a particular cancer. Some of the factors that affect prognosis like the type of cancer, its location in the body, the stage, size of the cancer, the cancer’s grade, age of the patients etc. The period of time varies; it may be 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, and etc. Cancer-specific survival is also called as disease-specific survival. Some of these are liver cancer prognosis, brain cancer prognosis etc.

Oncology has become one of the most important focus areas for pharmaceutical and biotech companies because of the high gear unmet need for improved handling for various types of Cancers. For an oncologist or an oncology nurse, to find the appropriate words to console a person who is suffering the loss of a loved one can be troublesome. This section in several oncology nursing conferences & oncology nursing meetings addresses how different groups of oncologists, patients, and Nurses think about the end-of-life care issues. This section discusses an oncologist's responsibility and perspective when it comes to subjects such as advanced cancer, hospice, do not resuscitate orders, cytotoxic therapy, maintaining a patient's dignity, supportive care and imminent decease. Article in this series also discuss the role of church property and religion during the time of Death, and the importance of good communicating between the oncologist and family members throughout the dying process
Surgical oncology is the branch of oncology which includes surgery applied to cancer or oncology. It focuses on the surgery of tumor cells or cancerous tumors. Surgery is often used to remove a breast cancer. In different types of cancer like melanoma and carcinoma, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer surgery is often needed to remove cancerous cells. There are more than 15 surgical oncology fellowship training program in USA. Thoracic oncologists and gynecologic oncologists are the surgeons who are having specialized in the field treating particular lung cancer and breast cancer respectively.

Radiation oncology is the branch of oncology which deals with the application of radiotherapy to treat the cancer or malignant cells. The ionizing radiation is having the ability to control the cell growth and damaging the DNA of cancerous tissue. Radiation oncology prescribes a distinct radiation that use in medical imaging or radiology with intent to cure the cancerous cells. Radiation therapy is used to treat different cancer like breast cancer, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, non-melanoma skin cancer, head and neck cancer, anal cancer, metastatic cancer.
Lung carcinoma is a malignant tumor in tissues of the lung. If untreated, the tumor growth can spread beyond the lung by process of metastasis to other parts of the body. Respiratory symptoms like wheezing, coughing up blood, coughing, shortness of breath, fever, weight loss are the main symptoms which have seen in the cases of lung cancer. Smoking, radon gas, asbestos, air pollution, genetic inheritances are the main causes of lung cancer. Mutation inn K-ras gene is responsible for lung adenocarcinoma. Lung cancer mainly diagnosed by chest radiography. It is classified as two broad areas i.e. non-small cell lung carcinoma and small cell lung carcinoma.

Cancer is when cells in the body grow out of control, often forming a mass or tumor. In upper urinary tract cancer, abnormal cells are found in the Renal pelvis (where urine collects in the kidneys before it travels to the ureters and bladder), Renal calyces (spaces deep in the kidneys), Ureters (thin tubes, made of muscle, which move urine from the kidney to the bladder). Bladder cancer begins most often in the cells that line the inside of the bladder. Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man's prostate a small walnut-shaped gland that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.

Bone cancer is a cancerous tumor of the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not all bone tumors are malignant. In fact, benign bone tumors are more common than malignant ones. Both malignant and benign bone tumors may grow and compress healthy bone tissue, but benign tumors do not spread, do not destroy bone tissue, and are rarely a threat to life. Bone cancer symptoms are pain the bone which may become more noticeable as the tumor grows. The area where the pain is encountered begins to swell or a lump may be noticed. There is much need to know about bone cancer information and bone cancer cure.
