“Cancer care is a rapidly evolving field with continuous treatment discoveries and advances that requires a multidisciplinary approach. This approach is far-reaching and ranges from health promotion to prevention and screening, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care. Cancer management has grown to encompass new tools and concepts including genetic counseling and immune therapy.
