Medical oncology is the practice of treating cancer through chemotherapy, which uses specialized medication to destroy cancer cells and/or halt their ability to divide and grow. These medications can be administered into the bloodstream or can be delivered to a specific area of the body. The course and length of treatment depends upon the type and stage of cancer that is being treated.
