Main Treatment Methods
In radiotherapy, ionizing radiation, such as an x-ray, is used to destroy or prevent tumor cells from increasing in size. Because the radiation is aimed directly at the tumor site, this method is more accurate when compared to chemotherapy. The patient does not feel any pain during the sessions, but there may be side effects that cause pain later.Close
Chemotherapy consists of administering medication orally or in the patient’s veins, arteries or muscles. It can reach cancer cells in any part of the body. There is a different type of chemotherapy medication for each case and side effects may vary, so it’s important to talk to your doctor and avoid self-medication.Close
The goal of surgery is to completely remove the tumor or reduce the amount of tumor cells and relieve symptoms. There are some important measures that can be taken to lower the risk of surgical complications.Close
