Medical Oncology is a specialty that focuses on treating cancer with chemotherapy (the use of drugs to stop cancer cells from growing and dividing). Within this specialty are hematologist oncologists—physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating cancers of the blood, such as Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins lymphomas, leukemias and multiple myelomas.

You can reduce your cancer risk by getting regular medical care, living smoke-free, limiting alcohol use, avoiding excessive exposure to UV rays from the sun and tanning beds, eating fruits and veggies, maintaining a healthy weight and being physically active.
