Chemotherapy uses chemical substances to target cancer cells and stop them from growing and multiplying, and is one of the most common treatments for cancer.
When it comes to chemotherapy, there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
Several factors - the type of cancer and how advanced it is, plus your health - determine which medicines to use, the dosage and frequency of treatment.
Your oncologist and the multidisciplinary team at OSF collaborate closely with you to personalize the treatment specific to your diagnosis to ensure you receive the treatment that provides the best outcome for your specific cancer.
They also make sure you understand what they are doing and why, giving you the education you need to make informed health care decisions.
