Teams of medical professionals such as surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and organ specific oncologists meet to come up with the best plan to treat an individual patient based on their physical, emotional and social needs. Prevention has been successful in reducing the rates of cancer. Excessive tobacco and alcohol use have been proven to cause cancer. People should also use sunscreen to prevent skin cancer.
