What is Oncology: Oncology, at its most basic level, involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. The word oncology comes from the Greek word meaning "mass" or "bulk," referring to tumors. A doctor who specializes in oncology is called an oncologist. The oncologist often coordinates the multidisciplinary care of cancer patients, which may involve chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, counseling, genetic testing, and clinical research.
What is Hematology: Hematology is the branch of internal medicine, physiology, pathology, clinical laboratory work, and pediatrics that is concerned with the study of blood, the blood-forming organs, and blood diseases. Hematology includes the study of etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of blood diseases. Physicians specialized in hematology are known as hematologists.
