Oncology 1: Tumour Biology, Diagnostic and Treatment Options & Skin Tumours

04 May 2020 - 08 May 2020 | Kunming, China

Principal Course Master:

Overview

Cancer is a common disease in pets and one of the main causes of death. Over the past decade, our knowledge of cancer in animals has increased rapidly, and today several treatment options exist to treat canine and feline cancer patients.
“Oncology I” will start with the diagnostic approach to the cancer patient, including cytology, biopsy taking, staging procedures and diagnostic imaging options (radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography…). Further, there will be a detailed discussion of common (surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy) treatment options. Management of side effects and safe handling of chemotherapeutic drugs will be explained. A major emphasis of the course will be on understanding how to approach a patient with cancer. There will be lots of interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the cancer patient including recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic findings, choosing correct staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan.
