In radiotherapy, ionizing radiation, such as an x-ray, is used to destroy or prevent tumor cells from increasing in size.

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
