Hemonc in cancer ctr: When you go to cancer center- unless mentioned otherwise (i.E radiation center or surgical center) , generally speaking, you will be seen by a hematologist/oncologist or a medical oncologist. In some bigger cancer centers - in addition to medical oncologist, there would be also surgical oncologist and radiation oncologist in the same place.

What is the problem: You did not explain why you want to go to cancer centre ?. First you should see your own local physician, who will refer to an oncologist, if it is a rare cancer your oncologist will refer you for experimental treatments in a cancer centre, or you seek a second opinion.

Hem: Most oncologists are also board-certified hematologist. But some cancer centers do not deal with benign hematology.
