Portuguese term or phrase: foro oncológico
the sentence reads: " do protecção especial dos doentes do foro oncológico"
Sue Simons
English translation:...for special protection of cancer patients
Explanation:
"foro oncológico" means "oncology medical specialization".

Since the context doesn't allow us to determine whether this sentence is in the surgical or in the medical areas, I belive the most adequate option is to simply mention the general patology: "cancer".
