Will Chemotherapy cure me?
| It depends on what sort of cancer you have.
You should ask your specialist how chemotherapy will help you.
Chemotherapy can cure some types of cancer.
Sometimes it can do this on its own - sometimes it can do this when
used together with surgery or radiotherapy.
When chemotherapy is used this way it is called adjuvant chemotherapy.
At other times chemotherapy is used to control your cancer
by stopping it growing or by making it shrink.
This can give you a longer life or can help reduce any problems the cancer is giving you.
