What is "Cancer Chemotherapy "

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to destroy cancer cells. It is keeping the cancer cells from growing, dividing, and making more cells.

Chemotherapy works best on cells that are actively growing and dividing. Cancer cells tend to grow and divide quickly so this makes them good targets for chemotherapy.

why some people lose their hair or vomit and have diarrhea during chemotherapy?


chemotherapy can’t tell the difference between cancer cells and Some normal cells, such as those in hair follicles and the lining of the digestive system, also tend to grow and divide quicker than other cells in the body. Chemotherapy can affect these cells as well. This is why some people lose their hair or vomit and have diarrhea. Normal cells can usually repair the damage over time, and these side effects tend to go away once you are finished chemotherapy treatment.

How long does chemotherapy take?


Your chemotherapy treatment will be planned by a medical oncologist and a cancer specialist who oversees drug therapies. They work with other members of the healthcare team to plan and deliver treatments.

Chemotherapy treatments may be given every day, every week or every month. Chemotherapy drugs are often given at regular intervals called cycles. Your healthcare team will tell you how long they expect your treatment to last.

Depending on how your body reacts to treatment, your doctor may make changes to your plan ,and he will tell you what you can eat and drink and what you should avoid while taking chemotherapy. Tell your doctor what medicines you take, including prescription drugs, vitamins and supplements such as herbs.



If your treatment plan includes immunotherapy, knowing how it works and what to expect can often help you prepare for treatment and make informed decisions about your care.
Immunotherapy is treatment that uses a person's own immune system to fight cancer. Immunotherapy can boost or change how the immune system works so it can find and attack cancer cells.

Hormone therapy

Some cancers depend on hormones to grow. Because of this, treatments that block or alter hormones can sometimes help slow or stop the growth of these cancers. Treating cancer with hormones is called hormone therapy, smart therapy, or endocrine therapy. Hormone therapy is mostly used to treat certain kinds of breast cancer and prostate cancer that depend on sex hormones to grow. A few other cancers can be treated with hormone therapy, too.

Targeted Therapy (smart)

Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs or other substances to precisely identify and attack certain types of cancer cells. A targeted therapy can be used by itself or in combination with other treatments, such as traditional or standard chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy.
