Chemotherapy destroys quick-growing cancer cells using drugs and restricts their spread before they grow into other parts of the body. Nevertheless, they also have an effect on the body’s non-cancerous cells, as a result this leads to side effects. There are two types of chemotherapy—adjuvant chemotherapy and neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
Certain types of chemotherapy could decrease the speed of cancer cell growth and stop them from disseminating to other parts of the body. Chemotherapy can be used in combination with radiation to aid in reducing the size of a tumour before a surgery. Chemotherapy can be used after radiation or surgery to kill any remaining cancer cells too.
