Cancer Drugs (Chemotherapy)

The most common treatment for cancer, chemotherapy is medication therapy, or “chemical therapy.” It works by damaging cancer cells slowly over time, with interruptions in treatment so that normal cells can have time to recover. With their faulty DNA, cancer cells do not recover (replicate) normally and eventually die off. Chemotherapy can involve injection, infusion or even oral delivery (pills). Side effects — which can include low red-blood-cell counts, low white-blood-cell numbers, low platelet counts, hair loss, fatigue, nausea and vomiting — can be minimized or better controlled with today’s new medications. Our oncologists work with you and your family to create a tailored treatment plan designed for your best possible results.
