Cancer Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy, also called chemo, is a medicine used to treat cancer. These medicines destroy cancer cells, keep them from growing and spreading, shrink the size of a tumor, or relieve cancer symptoms. 

Depending on the type of cancer, chemotherapy medicine may be given: 

  • With other medicine 
  • Before or after surgery and/or radiation to shrink a tumor 
  • In cycles so that your body can rest and repair between treatments 
  • Throughout the body or directly into the site of the cancer 
  • In a vein called intravenous (IV) or as a pill, an injection, or cream 
  • In a hospital, doctor’s office, or clinic 

Your doctor will decide on the type of medicines and how often they are to be given.  

Side Effects;

Chemo can destroy or slow down the growth of normal cells, including cells of the hair, mouth, digestive system, and blood stream. This can result in:

  • Hair loss 
  • Mouth sores 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Infections 
  • Tiredness 
  • Bleeding problems 

You will be watched closely for side effects. Let the doctor know how you are feeling. Exams, blood tests, and medicines will be used to prevent or treat any side effects and check your condition.
