Medical Oncology is similar to Clinical Oncology that both of them are subdivided from Internal Medicine. The difference between the two is that the Medical Oncology focuses on medication rather than electrotherapy, and tends to treat cancers through chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, and targeted therapy. Generally, for the tumours related to Haematology, especially blood cancer and lymphoma, the treatments provided by the Department of Medical Oncology will be more effective than the ones offered by the Department of Clinical Oncology.
Cancer is the number one killer in Hong Kong, accounting for nearly 30% of all registered deaths every year. There are many causes of tumours, including genetic factors, viruses, and various chemical and environmental carcinogens. To control or prevent cancers, the first step is to have a physical examination regularly.
