Chemotherapy is used to treat cancer. Different types of chemotherapy drugs work in different ways to treat cancerous cells, often by preventing the cells from growing or reproducing. Depending on the type of cancer you have and how it responds, you may be given more than one chemotherapeutic drug. Chemotherapy may be used alone or in combination with radiation, surgery and/or other medical therapies, such as hormones.

Receiving chemotherapy

Most individuals receive chemotherapy as an outpatient service. You may get chemotherapy every day, once a week, monthly or on a different schedule. Depending on the medication you need, your doctor may prescribe pills, or you may receive chemotherapy in our state-of-the-art infusion center at the Suburban Outpatient Pavilion, where chemotherapy-certified nurses deliver expert care in a warm and supportive environment.
