Overview

To most people, the word chemotherapy means drugs used for cancer treatment. However, chemotherapy is the use of any drug to treat any disease. The word chemotherapy is more popularly also referred to as ‘chemo’. chemo can work throughout the whole body unlike other therapies like surgery and radiation therapy which only remove, kill, or damage cancer cells in a certain area. Chemo helps to kill cancer cells that have spread (metastasized) to parts of the body far away from the original

Chemotherapy helps in eliminating cancer cells that are spread to the parts in the patient’s body even if they are far away from the place of the original tumor. If you are advised for chemotherapy for treating your cancer by your doctor it is important to understand the goals of treatment when you are making treatment decisions. You need to understand the three main goals for chemotherapy (chemo) in cancer treatment:

  1.   Cure
  2.   Control
  3.   Palliation

Symptoms

Chemotherapy is only recommended after the patient undergoes a few tests through which the surgeon assesses the growth of a tumor and decides if chemotherapy is required or not. Then the doctor will decide what drug or combination of drugs you will get and choose the doses, how the drugs will be given, and how often and how long you’ll get treatment. All these decisions depend on the type of cancer, where it is, how big it is, and how it affects your normal body functions and overall health.
