Medical oncology involves the diagnosing and treating of cancer systemically by using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy. Medical oncologists often practice hematology as well, which is a specialty involving disorders of the blood. Therefore, not everyone treated in medical oncology has cancer.
Radiation oncology is a specialty which uses radiation therapy via high energy beams to kill cancer cells. Your radiation oncologist is a specialist in this field. Most radiation treatments treat the local area of cancer involvement rather than the whole body.
