When people think of cancer treatments, they often think of chemotherapy. This type of cancer treatment uses a range of drugs that target rapidly dividing cancer cells. It is a vital part of many treatment plans and can be used with other medications and therapies.
What is Chemotherapy?
Cancer cells grow and divide more rapidly than they should, causing them to grow out of control Chemotherapy uses several methods to target these fast-dividing cells and prevent them from growing. At Cochise Oncology, we often use chemotherapy to eliminate cancer, prevent its spread, or shrink tumors. We may combine it with other treatments to maximize your benefits.
