Chemotherapy Treatment


MEDISQUARE SUPERSPECIALITY HOSPITAL owned by the BEST CONCOLOGIST IN AHMEDABAD  Dr. Ekta Vala Chandrana with her years of expert experience as one of the BEST CHEMOTHERAPIST. Chemotherapy is a type of medical treatment that uses drugs to kill cancer cells. It is often used to treat cancer that has spread beyond its original location, or to reduce the risk of cancer returning after surgery or other treatments. Chemotherapy can be an effective treatment for many types of cancer, and it may be used alone or in combination with other cancer treatments.
There are many different chemotherapy drugs that are used to treat cancer, and they work in different ways. Some chemotherapy drugs work by damaging the DNA within cancer cells, which can prevent them from dividing and growing. Others work by disrupting the blood supply to cancer cells, which can prevent them from getting the nutrients they need to survive.
Chemotherapy is typically administered through a vein (intravenous, or IV) or as a pill that is taken by mouth. The specific chemotherapy drugs and the schedule for treatment will vary depending on the type and stage of cancer, as well as the overall health of the patient.
Chemotherapy can be an effective treatment for many types of cancer, and it has the potential to significantly improve outcomes for many patients. However, chemotherapy can also cause side effects, which can range from mild to severe. The side effects of chemotherapy can include nausea, vomiting, hair loss, fatigue, and an increased risk of infection.
Overall, chemotherapy is a widely used treatment for cancer, and it has the potential to significantly improve outcomes for many patients. If you are considering chemotherapy as a treatment option, we are here for you.

What is Chemotherapy?
Drugs are used in chemotherapy to kill cancer cells. This particular cancer treatment prevents cancer cells from proliferating, dividing, and creating new cells.
Chemotherapy is a treatment option for a variety of malignancies. Chemotherapy may also be referred to as normal chemotherapy, conventional chemotherapy, or cytotoxic chemotherapy by your doctor.
What is the goal of chemotherapy?
The goals of chemotherapy depend on the type of cancer and how far it has spread. Chemotherapy can be given alone or as part of a treatment plan that includes different treatments. Some of the uses of chemotherapy are:
As a first treatment. The goal of chemotherapy may be to get rid of all the cancer and prevent it from coming back. This is called “curative chemotherapy”.
Before other treatments. Chemotherapy can be given before tumor-shrinking surgery or radiation therapy. This is sometimes called "neoadjuvant chemotherapy."
After other treatments. Surgery or radiation therapy may be followed by chemotherapy to kill any remaining cancer cells. This is called “adjuvant chemotherapy”.
It slows the progression of cancer and relieves symptoms. Even if the cancer is incurable, chemotherapy can partially shrink the tumor and stop it from growing and spreading for varying periods of time. It can reduce cancer-related symptoms and improve quality of life. Chemotherapy used for these purposes is sometimes called "palliative chemotherapy."
Chemotherapy can be used to treat many types of cancer. It can also be used to treat recurrent or metastatic cancer. Recurrent cancer is cancer that has recurred after it has been treated. Metastatic cancer is cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.
What factors determine the chemotherapy regimen?
There are many drugs used to treat cancer. A doctor who specializes in treating cancer with drugs is called a medical oncologist. This type of doctor prescribes chemotherapy. Combinations of drugs are sometimes given because some drugs are more effective than any one. Medications, doses, and treatment regimens depend on many factors. These include:
  • Type of cancer
  • cancer stage. The stage of cancer depends on the size and location of the tumor and whether the cancer has spread. The size of the tumor, its location, and whether or where it has spread.
  • your age and general health
  • your weight
  •  previous cancer treatment
Where do you receive chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy can be given at a medical center or taken at home, depending on the specific drug.
Your health care team may need you to come in regularly to the clinic, doctor's office, or hospital to receive the chemotherapy. This may be called outpatient treatment.
Some types of chemotherapy can be taken at home. Ask your health care team how to safely store, handle, and dispose of your at-home medication. See more below, under "oral chemotherapy" and "topical chemotherapy."
How is chemotherapy delivered?
Chemotherapy may be given in several different ways, which are discussed below.
Intravenous (IV) chemotherapy. Many drugs require injection directly into a vein. This is called intravenous or IV chemotherapy. Treatment takes a few minutes to a few hours. Some IV drugs work better if you get them over a few days or weeks. You take them through a small pump you wear or carry. This is called continuous infusion chemotherapy.
Oral chemotherapy. Oral chemotherapy is taken by mouth. This can be as a pill, capsule, or liquid. This means that you may be able to pick up your medication at the pharmacy and take it at home. Oral treatments for cancer are now more common. Some of these drugs are given daily, and others are given less often. Be sure to ask your health care team about your drug's schedule and how to store the drug. Learn more about how to keep track of taking your medication at home.
Injected chemotherapy. This is when you receive chemotherapy as a shot. The shot may be given in a muscle or injected under the skin. You may receive these shots in the arm, leg, or abdomen. Abdomen is the medical word for your belly.
Chemotherapy into an artery. An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood from your heart to another part of your body. Sometimes chemotherapy is injected into an artery that goes directly to the cancer. This is called intra-arterial or IA chemotherapy.
Chemotherapy into the peritoneum or abdomen. For some cancers, medication might be placed directly in your abdomen. This type of treatment works for cancers involving the peritoneum. The peritoneum covers the surface of the inside of the abdomen and surrounds the intestines, liver, and stomach. Ovarian cancer is one type of cancer that frequently spreads to the peritoneum.
Topical chemotherapy. Some types of chemotherapy come as a cream that you put on your skin. You get your medication at the pharmacy and apply it at home.
What forms of chemotherapy are there?
Cancer chemotherapy includes over 100 different drugs. All chemotherapeutic agents damage cells, but they attack different cellular targets at different stages of the cell cycle. Combining drugs that damage cancer cells in different ways can improve the effectiveness of treatment.
The main types of chemotherapy are:
  • Alkylating agent
  • antimetabolite
  • antitumor antibiotics
  • Topoisomerase inhibitor
  • mitotic inhibitor
  • plant alkaloid
Chemotherapy with Other Cancer Treatments
Besides chemotherapy, there are other types of drugs that treat cancer, such as: B. Hormone therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy. An oncologist may combine chemotherapy with another type of drug in a patient's treatment plan. These categories of drugs work in different ways to treat cancer, and their side effects are usually different than those seen with chemotherapy. Talk to your healthcare team about what to expect with your particular prescription.
hormone therapy. Hormone therapy is a type of cancer treatment that removes, blocks, or adds certain hormones to the body. Also called hormone therapy or endocrine therapy. Hormone therapy can be used to treat many types of cancer.
immunotherapy. This type of treatment helps the body's natural defenses fight cancer. Immunotherapy has developed rapidly in recent years and is now an important part of the treatment of many types of cancer. 
Targeted therapy. These treatments target genes or proteins in cancer cells that are necessary for cancer cells to grow and turn them off. Targeted therapy can treat many types of cancer.
