Chemotherapy is used to kill cancer cells in people with cancer. There are a variety of settings in which chemotherapy may be used in people with cancer: To cure cancer without other treatments. Chemotherapy can be used as the primary or sole treatment for cancer.
Some people with cancer will have only one treatment. But most people have a combination of treatments, such as surgery with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. You may also have immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or hormone therapy. Clinical trials might also be an option for you.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays or particles to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. In advanced cancer, radiation therapy is often used to shrink tumors to reduce pain or other symptoms. This is called palliative radiation.
