Chemotherapy is the medical term used to describe any type of cancer treatment involving the use of chemical agents to stop cancerous tumors and cells from growing. More than 50% of all people diagnosed with cancer will receive chemotherapy as part of their treatment process and for millions of men and women it is a highly effective form of treatment.  People undergoing chemotherapy will be prescribed a regime (a plan and schedule) from their oncologist that will include chemotherapy drugs to fight the cancer, as well as drugs to manage the side effects of chemotherapy.
