As an oncologist, you are specifically trained and qualified to identify, understand, diagnose, and treat tumors. To make certain cancer patients are given the best possible care and treatments, oncologists are important specialists in any medical organization. However, being an irreplaceable medical professional makes for a stressful situation any time an oncologist reports for work. Not to mention, knowing that an accurate diagnosis could save a cancer patient’s life puts a heavy weight on an oncologist’s shoulders.
