What is Local Oncologist

A local oncologist is a medical doctor who diagnoses and treats people with cancer. People with many types of cancer including lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, skin cancer or brain cancer work with local oncologists. Depending on the type of cancer you have, your local oncologist may recommend chemotherapy, which is uses chemicals to destroy cancer cells; radiation therapy, which uses high-energy x-rays; or surgery, which involves surgical removal of the tumour or tumours. While you can’t prevent all types of cancer, there are some important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your risk of getting it. For example, if you smoke, you’re at a higher risk of developing lung cancer, so quitting smoking can reduce your risk. By eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits and whole grains, you may also reduce your risk of developing certain types of cancer. If you have cancer, working with a local registered dietitian in addition to your local oncologist and family physician may help. A local registered dietitian can also help you understand the benefits of anti-inflammatory foods, prevent nausea from chemotherapy with certain foods and supplements, lower sodium and saturated fats and eat well to heal faster after surgery.
