Compare 17 clinics

An Oncology Consultation is the first step a patient must take after he was diagnosed with cancer. This examination is performed by a doctor specialised in cancer treatment, including diagnosing, preventing and planning. Oncologists specialise in different areas like pediatric oncology, radiation oncology and surgical oncology. Depending on the stage and complexity of the disease the patient will be oriented towards one or more of these options.

Oncology Consultation Candidates

An oncology consultation is recommended for patients diagnosed with cancer.

Am I Suitable for Oncology Consultation?

An oncology consultation is a process recommended only for patients who were diagnosed with cancer or suffering from cancer symptoms.

Preparing for Oncology Consultation

Before a first oncology consultation, the patient should prepare all the relevant medical documents for his medical history and a list of questions that he may have for the doctor.

How is Oncology Consultation Performed?

The oncology consultation takes about 30 to 60 minutes. In order to develop a treatment plan, the doctor may require a series of additional tests and consultations. Depending on the type of disease, the recommended treatment can be a combination of procedures and therapies like radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and surgeries. Most likely, the specialist will schedule a series of scan procedures like MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography) to analyse the tumor and have a better understanding of how the disease and the treatment are affecting the patient’s organism. The doctor will review all the test results and will adapt the treatment plan to meet the patient’s needs. During an oncology consultation, the patient will be informed in detail of the risks and complications of every treatment option.

Oncology Consultation Recovery

The oncology consultation doesn’t require a recovery period. The patients may need to recover after a more serious medical procedure prescribed as a treatment for their condition like surgery or chemotherapy.

Oncology Consultation Risks and Complications

Normally there are no complications or risks that may occur after having an oncology consultation. It is a non-intrusive process that helps the doctor and the patient to plan the best suitable treatment. On the other hand, the patient may follow a treatment that involves certain risks and complications and he will be informed about those during his appointment.

Oncology Consultation Side Effects

There are no side effects associated with an oncology consultation. The patient will be informed about the possible side effects which a cancer treatment may have over his/her organism.

Oncology Consultation Success Rates

An oncology consultation should offer the best possible management for the patient’s disease based on his general health state and financial resources. It is also very successful in diagnosing, preventing and treating cancer.

Before and After Oncology Consultation

Before an oncology consultation the patient should prepare all the documents requested by the physician like: copies of scans, biopsies, test results, etc. Also, it is recommended to specify any medication that the patient may take, in order to avoid potential interactions with the treatment. You may take notes with the indications and ask the doctor any questions that you may have during the oncology consultation. Bringing a family member may help for moral support. In case of a very complex disease, a second opinion from another specialist is recommended.
