What is Chemotherapy?

The process of using powerful chemicals and anti-cancer drugs to kill cancer cells is known as chemotherapy.

It may be given for curative purposes or reducing symptoms and prolong life.

A lot of chemotherapy drugs are available, which are either used alone or in combination.

Chemotherapy is an effective way of treating cancer, but it has many side effects, such as-

  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Hair loss
  • Appetite loss
  • Bleeding
  • Itching
  • Mouth ulcers

How is the Procedure Performed?

The chemotherapy process is a little complex. First, a device is surgically inserted into the body before any intravenous chemotherapy. These devices can be a catheter, port, or pump.

Then there are pre-investigative tests to ensure your body is ready for chemotherapy. Every aspect and side effect planning and management is done.

For the chemotherapy drug to be given to the body, there are many routes -

  • Infusion
