Chemotherapy is basically used to cure, control and ease the symptoms of cancer. Successful Chemotherapy treatments destroy cancer cells to the point that they are no longer detected within the patient’s body and will not grow back. Chemotherapy also helps in preventing the cancer from spreading to other parts of your body. It also helps in palliative care as chemotherapy helps in shrinking the tumors that are causing pain or discomfort.
Chemotherapy is often given along with surgery, radiation therapy or biological therapy. When chemotherapy is given to make a tumor smaller before surgery or radiation therapy then the process is named as neo-adjuvant chemotherapy. When chemotherapy is given after a surgery or radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells then, it is called as adjuvant chemotherapy. However, chemotherapy process is said to be crucial in cases of recurrent cancer when it is used to destroy cancer cells that have come back or have spread to other parts of the body (metastatic cancer).
