Medical oncology

Drug therapies for tailored cancer care

Our team of medical oncologists are at the leading edge of anti-cancer drug development, helping us to provide the most effective treatment, faster

Overview

Medical oncology is a branch of cancer care concerned with the treatment and management of cancer using anti-cancer medication and drug therapies. From our dedicated chemotherapy suites to the latest immunotherapy and hormone treatments, we have the facilities and expertise to offer medical care for patients of any age, with any type of cancer. Our experienced medical oncologists work in multidisciplinary teams to provide a comprehensive treatment plan, tailored to each patient. This means that alongside treatment with a course of specialised medication, you may also have radiotherapy or surgery. A key part of our cancer care service is Sarah Cannon Research UK — our world-leading clinical trial facility, which is at the forefront of innovative new therapies. Being at the heart of new drug development helps us to deliver the most effective cancer treatment at the earliest opportunity.

    Need to know

  • Chemoembolisation

    Need to know

    TACE is usually used to treat liver cancer. It starves the tumour of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to grow. In some cases, it may cause the tumour to shrink.
