What should you expect at an Oncology clinic?

Your initial consultation with an oncologist, whether they are a surgical, medical or radiation specialist, will involve taking and reviewing your medical history, symptoms, records related to your diagnosis, any radiology scans, pathology slides and reports. It may also involve a physical examination and you might be measured and weighed. Once the oncologist or team has analysed everything you’ll be given full details about your treatment options and choices.
