What is Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy is drug treatment for cancer i.e. the use of anti-cancer drugs to kill cancer cells in the body. This video describes the basics of cancer and chemotherapy.
Cancer is the uncontrolled division and growth of abnormal cells in the body.
Chemotherapy uses cytotoxic drugs to kill cancer cells.
Anti-cancer treatment has expanded beyond the use of cytotoxic chemotherapy to more advanced treatments such as hormone and targeted therapies.
