Biopsy: If a noninvasive (imaging) test, like an xray or ct scan, indicates a cancer then a biopsy will be necessary to confirm that there is a cancer and it will determine which kind of cancer.
A referral to an oncologist is probably warranted. What to do will then be determined by the type of cancer and stage of the cancer.

Oncologist: Once a diagnosis is made, you would most likely be referred to an oncologist. Hope this helps.
