“What do you call a doctor who is on call 24/7?"/"An oncologist.”

An “oncologist” is someone who treats cancer patients; the name sounds like “on-call-ogist.” “Oncologist.................A Doctor who is always on call” was posted on the newsgroup fido7.ru.english on February 6, 1999.

A riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on August 13, 2014:

Q: What kind of doctor is always on call?
A: An oncologist!



Wikipedia: Oncology
Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. A medical professional who practices oncology is an oncologist. The name’s etymological origin is the Greek word ὄγκος (ónkos), meaning “tumor”, “volume” or “mass” and the word λόγος (logos), meaning “speech”.

I’d hate to be an emergency cancer surgeon, because then I’d be an on-call oncologist.
