What is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy uses drugs to treat cancer. The drugs can be swallowed in pill form or injected into a vein or muscle. The drugs circulate throughout the body to reach and destroy the cancer cells. Chemotherapy is an effective way to destroy any cancer cells that break off from the main tumor and travel in the bloodstream to lymph nodes or distant organs. Most types of chemotherapy kill cancer cells directly. Other drugs act by making the cells more vulnerable to radiation. Often the use of two or more drugs is more effective than a single drug.
