What is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy or chemo is a treatment that uses chemical substances to destroy fast-growing cancer cells in your body. Chemotherapy is most often used to treat cancer because it targets cells that multiply and divide quickly. There are different types of chemotherapy drugs available to treat the various types of cancer.
Chemotherapy medications are usually delivered intravenously, a process that can take several hours. Oral chemotherapy in the form of pills or liquids is also available. The option chosen will depend on the type, grade, and stage of the cancer being treated.
