Following diagnosis, your team of doctors will work with you to create an effective and personalized treatment plan. Some conditions require chemotherapy, which means you take strong medications that destroy cancer cells throughout your body.

Benefits of Chemotherapy

You receive chemotherapy either by taking oral pills or liquids, or through an IV that sends the medication directly into your bloodstream. Chemotherapy kills cancer cells to help rid your body of cancer.

Chemotherapy Treatment Plan

A chemotherapy treatment plan will incorporate the following factors:

  • What drug or drugs you take
  • What dose you take
  • How often you receive treatment
  • Whether you receive treatment as an inpatient or in our outpatient clinic
  • Any follow-up tests or treatments
