There are three major methods of fighting cancer. You will be given one or a combination of the three techniques based on your specific condition.
- Radiation Therapy
Chemotherapy involves the use of chemicals, or anticancer drugs that specifically target cancer cells to stop or slow down their growth. Chemotherapy may be used alone or with the combination with surgery or radiation. The most well known side-effect to this technique is hair loss.
Radiation therapy focuses ionized radiation on malignant cells to remove or kill them completely. Innovation has helped doctors deliver larger doses of radiation to cancer cells, while successfully avoiding normal tissue. It is most effective when used to treat cancer that is localized to single area of the body.
