Surgical Oncologist(s) in United Arab Emirates
An individual is asked to fill a questionnaire about the family history of cancer, medications the patient is taking (including hormone replacement therapy and the contraceptives), and any surgery in the past.
Once the formalities are completed, the breast surgeon will ask to get the mammography done. The test will detect the presence or absence of cancer (if yes – which stage it is). Several other tests coupled with other tests such as mammography are suggested. For instance, Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA), Ultrasound Scan, and Core Biopsy. Findings of the report then decide the further course of action.

Primary care doctors can refer an individual to a specialist to treat cancer. Specialists are health care professionals who are trained in specific areas of medicine. The specialists then need to clear the exam by the Speciality Board. Doctors who qualify this become board-certified specialists. This certifies their skill and proficiency.
Some specialties such as breast cancer surgery don’t have board certifications. Doctors practicing in this specialty are board-certified in the broader field (General Surgery) giving them fundamental skills to perform breast surgery.
Additionally, fellowships and a number of years of experience also add value to a surgeon’s practice.
