General oncology

General oncology deals with tumor diseases of any origin.

In particular, unclear findings that are suspicious of malignant cancer or the treatment of metastasized, advanced types of cancer whose origin cannot be assigned to an organ are investigated. The General Oncology team is therefore an important partner for doctors in private practice. In general oncology, special attention is also paid to alleviating the symptoms caused by cancer and the side effects that can occur as a result of chemotherapy. These include the treatment of pain, fatigue or loss of appetite.

As a university hospital, we are actively involved in research into new, promising tumor therapies.

Last but not least, we are supported by experienced and dedicated specialist staff from our oncology care department. We also benefit from interdisciplinary collaboration with specialists from various fields.
