What is Chemotherapy and Why It’s Done?

Chemotherapy is a treatment that uses powerful drugs which destroy the cells to cure certain types of cancers. Whereas Immunotherapy uses medicines to enhance one’s immune system which in turn attacks the cancer cells, these can be used in the following scenarios.

  • Before surgery: Chemo / immune therapy is used to shrink a locally advanced tumor thus allowing a subsequent successful surgery. This is referred to as Neoadjuvant Treatment.
  • After Surgery: Chemo / immune therapy is used to kill hidden cancer cells that may remain in the body after performing cancer surgery. This is referred to as Adjuvant Treatment
  • Along with Radiotherapy: Chemotherapy is used in conjunction with radiation to enhance the effect of radiation
  • Sole treatment for cancer: Chemo / immune therapy is sometimes used as a sole treatment for cancer without other treatments. Example: Blood cancer
  • Palliative: Chemo / immune therapy is used to extend the life span of a person infected with full-blown cancer. The treatment gives relief to the patient by easing the symptoms of cancer by killing the malignant cancer cells.
