Oncology

Oncology is the area of healthcare that deals with cancer. Cancer is a disease where cells grow uncontrollably, creating tumours.

Depending on when a diagnosis is made and what type of cancer is present, a recovery is possible, but sometimes the disease can be terminal.

Physiotherapy can be important in recovery and facilitate a return to normal function. In terminal cases physiotherapy can help to maintain quality of life.

Cancer can affect all age groups including:

  • Adult
  • Paediatric
