comment Is there an umbrella word for cancer treatment?
I agree. Oncology is too broad; it covers much more than treatment and is more likely interpreted as cancer research than treatment.

comment What's the word for “running with your arms outstretched as though flying”?
Yes, this was the one I was trying to think of when I saw this question. I don't know if it is the right answer, but it does seem to fit in that it is an odd usage of a relatively uncommon word.

comment “No, faith, not a jot, but to follow him thither with modesty enough, and likelihood to lead it.”
I think it might help if you explained how but is used in the phrase. That might be the OP's sticking point. But that he understood that construction, he might well grasp its meaning.

comment Is there any reason for saying “he is good-looking”, instead of “he is well-looking”?
Your parallel isn't quite right. It ought to be "good looks" to "well-looked" if you followed the same conversion. In fact, that might tell us something very interesting, as good + complement seems to take a gerund, where well + complement seems to take a past participle. I don't have any idea if that's true or not though.
