The first priority of any oncologist is to prevent risk factors associated with cancer. This means that patients should stop smoking, drinking, using drugs, or eating diets that are known to exaggerate the growth of cancer. There are different types of oncologists that come together to create cancer management plans. A radiation oncologist, pathologists, organ-specific experts and surgical oncologists are parts of a typical oncology team.
