The profession of doctor is the most important pillar of healthcare. To celebrate their devotion to help others and spend their lives for the people of the country, National Doctor’s Day is celebrated in India on July 1st.
This date is marked as both the birth and death anniversary of Dr. Bidhan C Roy. It serves as a reminder of the unique contribution made by this illustrious doctor, who helped millions of people, including Mahatma Gandhi, and treated thousands of patients.
It is a well-known fact that being a doctor is a tough job with flexible work hours. To honor these finest doctors, National Doctors Day was created.
After Covid, the respect for doctors and healthcare workers has increased in everyone’s heart. We want to show the same respect for our doctors who are associated with our organization, Cancer Rounds.
When we hear the word cancer, the first thing that comes into our mind is death or pain and we seek the doctors immediately for medical help and care.
Cancer is a disease characterized by the abnormal growth of cells. The causes may vary with respect to the tissue or organ which is affected. It can make the day-to-day life difficult for the patient. Most often, genetic mutation and chromosomal abnormalities lead to cancer cell production.
Cancer can hinder the normal chemical balance of the body and increase the risk of fetal complications. As the tumor grows, the problem becomes more severe and more difficult to handle. According to statistics, every year millions of people lose their battle against cancer.
Now the importance of cancer specialists or oncologists come into the picture. A doctor who focuses on identifying and treating cancer patients is known as an oncologist.
There are several types of oncologists such as:
1. Medical Oncologist
Medical oncologists are the doctors who help their patients manage the side effects using different therapies like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Hormone therapy and other targeted treatments. They help the patients monitor the treatment and maintain well-being.
Some of our allied medical oncologists are Dr. Ankur Bahl (FMRI), Dr. Priya Tiwari (Artemis), Dr. Hari Goel (Artemis), Dr. Indoo (HCG Mumbai) etc.

Apart from them, the team of oncologists, there are many health care workers also who support patients during their course of treatment. They find great reward in helping their patients, continual exposure to suffering and death also put them at risk of job burnout.
