Chemotherapy :uses and side effects

Chemotherapy is a method of treating diseases by using chemically produced drugs. It is an old method (since 1950) and its main goal is to stop the multiplication of cancerous cells and thus stop the disease. This is a very potent treatment, which explains its side effects.

Chemotherapy : in which case  ?

Chemotherapy is always scary and generally linked by the treatment of different types of cancer such as breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, thyroid cancer, and so on. This drug may be suggested for the treatment of diseases in early stages or more advanced stages.

This treatment is not suggested, it is a systematic procedure. But before deciding it, the doctor takes into consideration several factors such as the patient's experience, the surgical antecedents, and so on.

During the first few treatment sessions, hospitalization is mandatory to monitor the patient's condition.
