Oncologist surgeon

Hi, i am an eu medical student and i would like to ask a few questions about the residency of the oncologist surgeon. I understand that this residency program is based on general surgery residency. I would like to ask if someone can perform only tumor surgeries or you actually work as a general surgeon specialised in oncology even if you have completed a fellowship in oncology. I am interested in eu information. In addition I want to know whether having a specialty in oncology gives you a fixed schedule and you avoid the emergencies a general surgeon faces
Thanks in advance
