Oncology Week – Let’s Discuss Cancer

Semana da Oncologia - Vamos falar de Cancro

Hospital da Luz Setúbal is organizing between 15 and 18 November a series of awareness and education initiatives on Oncology, destined to the public in general.

The “Oncology Week” comprises thematic sessions on breast, colorectal, prostate and skin cancers, with the participation of medical specialists in Oncology, Surgery, Gastroenterology, Radiotherapy, Plastic Surgery and Dermatology. Besides approaching the themes, the participants will answer questions and clarify doubts raised by the public.

In oncology, the multidisciplinary treatment, involving physicians from different specialities (oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists) and many other health professionals, is essential for treating patients, considering the great complexity of the disease and its different therapeutic approaches.

Sessions will take place in the Auditorium of Hospital da Luz Setúbal, from 15 to 18 November, between 15:00 and 16:00, with free entry.
