In brief: Start with PCP

Oncologist is a doctor who deals with cancer.
Can be divided into different kinds- medical oncologist- dealing with cancer and treat patient with medication/chemotherapy - cancer fighting medicine; surgical oncologist, radiation oncologist.. Depending on your problem- your primary doctor is able to guide you to the right channel. Good luck.

In brief: Talk to Your Primary

If by therapist, you mean someone to talk to like a clinical psychologist, your primary doctor may well know some in your community that are well recommended.
If you are near a major medical center or nci designated cancer center, there are often multidisciplinary teams including psychologists or therapists to help. Also, try the american cancer society.
