Take Career Counselling
Can you elaborate on a list of courses that can help me in cancer diagnostics ..like being able to detect cancer and the like..
I would also like to know of the careers that the courses can offer and its scope.
I am looking for a job oriented course more than a research based course or career.
Thank you for your time
Awaiting your Reply!
Dear Sheikha, thanks for putting up your query here.
Cancer is diagnosed by an expert who examine cell or tissue samples. In some cases, tests done on the cells' proteins, DNA, and RNA can help diagnose cancer. For diagnosis, biopsies and cytology tests are used.
A biopsy is a sample of tissue taken from the body in order to examine it more closely. Cytology is concerned with the structure and function of cells. I do not know you qualification right now so it is difficult for me to suggest specific courses. However, courses in the area of microbiology, medical oncology, and cytology will be helpful for you to specialize in cancer diagnosis.
I would suggest you to browse through following institutes and their courses. List of courses in cancer diagnostics:Institute of Cytology and Preventive Oncology (ICPO), NoidaIndian Institute of Technology - Mumbai, MaharashtraManipal Institute of Communication - Manipal, KarnatakaJamia Millia Islamia - New Delhi, DelhiInstitute of Business Studies and Research (IBSAR) - Navi Mumbai, MaharashtraUniversity Of Delhi - New Delhi, DelhiPost Graduate College of Science - Hyderabad, Andhra PradeshBerhampur University - Berhampur, OrissaMaris Stella College - Vijayawada, Andhra PradeshCMC VelloreSt.JOhn's BangaloreSRMC Chennai
Your second query was to know careers that the courses can offer and its scope. Since there are different kind of courses (graduate, post-graduate, and certificate), it is imperative for me to know which level of courses are best fit for you and I can share its scope.
Hope this information is useful. If you still have queries, feel free to write back with details about your education background so that I can provide detailed information you seek.
Best Wishes,Apurva Kumar Pandya, PhD
I remember, you asking about Molecular Diagnostics and Cytogenetics.
Though I would request you to go back and read those answers, but never-the-less in short, I would say that in terms of Research into cancer diagnostics, Cytogenetics is a good specialization.
Since they are the ones who study the genetic disorders and chromosomal correlation to get the answer to what causes cancer.
Then steps in the molecular diagnostic tools, which once the research is done, they study it in laboratory setup of samples that comes to the diagnostic centre for people who can be affected as suggested by the physician.
As suggested, Cytogenetics are available at the masters level either as an M.Sc or a PG Diploma course.
Mostly this is a 24/7 Research oriented job, whereby you would be required to study samples in a laboratory set-up and write Research papers on it.
Since you have mentioned, job oriented and less research job, then Molecular diagnostic is a better option, Since Molecular diagnostic is more of studying the samples which comes in for diagnosis at the diagnostic centre as suggested by the physician. They are generally found in the diagnostic centres either hospitals or private centres.
Again Molecular diagnostic is available at the masters level, after a genetic undergraduate study.
Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck....
Thank you for your detailed reply..
Just a query..Won't Medical Oncology require for me to be a medical student.. I've heard that it comes with PG in med school

For medical oncology, medical background is required. Its PG course after graduation in medicine.
