Chemotherapy is a sort of therapy that is used to treat cancer; in this process, chemical drugs are used to kill the rapidly growing cells in the body, which is the root cause of cancer. Unlike surgery and radiation therapy that destroy, remove or damage cancer cells in a certain area, Chemotherapy can work throughout the whole body, it may also be possible that chemotherapy may be given alone or with other treatments.
Sometimes chemotherapy is used to treat non-cancerous conditions, but often the doses are lower and the side effects may be reduced. There are three primary goals of chemotherapy: Cure, Control, and to Ease Symptoms caused by cancer.
