If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, your physician may suggest chemotherapy as a treatment option. Chemotherapy involves treating cancer through the use of drugs.

There are a variety of drugs used in chemotherapy, but they all kill cancer cells and help keep them from spreading to other parts of the body.

Sometimes chemotherapy is the only treatment needed. In other cases, chemotherapy may be combined with other treatment therapies, including surgery and radiation, all of which are all available here in Cambridge at Southeastern Med.
