About Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy, or ‘chemo’, is the most common form of cancer treatment. Chemo treatment uses drugs called as cytotoxic, to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells.

Each period of chemotherapy treatment is called a cycle. After each cycle there is usually a rest period, so that normal cells repair themselves and the body begins to regain its strength.

How is it given?

Chemo drugs can be given in a variety of ways, depending on the type of cancer and the type of chemotherapy drugs being used.

  • Intravenous Chemotherapy: It is mostly given by injection into a vein.
  • Oral Chemotherapy: Some drugs are given as tablets or capsules.
  • Intramuscular Injections: Some are injected into a muscle.
  • Subcutaneous injections: Others may be injected just under the skin.

Chemotherapy treatments can be given daily, weekly or monthly for several months to a year. It depends on the type of chemotherapy, and how long it takes for new healthy cells to grow between the treatments.

Ways of giving Chemotherapy drugs

  • Cannula – a small tube is inserted into a vein in the arm or the back of the hand.
  • Central line – a thin, flexible tube is inserted through the skin of the chest into a vein near the heart.
  • PICC line (a peripherally inserted central catheter) – a thin, flexible tube passed into a vein in the bend or upper part of the arm and threaded through until the end of the tube lies in a vein near the heart.
  • Implantable port (also called a portacath) – a thin, soft plastic tube that is put into a vein. It has an opening (port) just under the skin on your chest or arm.

Goals of chemotherapy treatment
If the doctor has recommended chemotherapy, it’s important to understand the goals of treatment when making treatment decisions. There are three main goals for chemotherapy (chemo) in cancer treatment:

1. Cure

2. Control

3. Palliation
