Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
Who should I see about chemotherapy for my prostate cancer?
Carolyn Vachani RN, MSN, AOCN, OncoLink's Nurse Educator, responds:
Chemotherapy is managed by a doctor called a medical oncologist. These doctors are trained in the administration of chemotherapy and managing of related side effects. You can find a medical oncologist through your urologist or your family physician as they can recommend a medical oncologist who they trust and have a working relationship. This recommendation is typically based on both their own experience and the experience of patients that they have referred in the past.
