Outpatient appointment with an oncologist
This is a service in which an oncologist diagnoses, treats, monitors and consults patients with a malignant tumour. A referral from your family physician or specialist physician is needed to book an appointment.
The oncologist mainly arranges systematic treatment of the tumour using chemotherapy or combinations with other medication groups: targeted therapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy.
Patients who are in a good general condition, and whose cancer treatment consists of oral medications or drip infusion with a duration of up to 4 hours, undergo outpatient treatment. The patient should definitely reserve time for the procedure and not schedule any time-bound activities for the day. Depending on the situation, the need for additional analyses may arise, or the administration of the treatment may not go as planned.
Oncologists see patients at the Magdaleena unit of the East Tallinn Central Hospital.
