The Oncology Department is dedicated to treating adult cancer patients with solid tumors (such as breast, bowel or lungs) by using non-surgical treatments. These treatments include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, and palliative care. Cancer surgery can be performed in the surgical department of Al Nahda International Hospital, but patients requiring radiotherapy will then be referred to other hospitals such as Tawam or Mafraq Hospital. Investigations to evaluate the type, spread and stage of the cancer using histopathology, cytology, radiology and laboratory tests are also available. Early diagnosis and proper primary treatment guarantees the best results. Surgical intervention and radiotherapy control the disease locally, but oncological treatment prevents its spread around the body. The department follows internationally approved treatment protocols recommended by American and European Cancer Organizations. All of the modern drugs registered by Ministry of Health, Abu Dhabi, are available.
