Chemotherapy is the term which refers to the use of chemical substances for the treatment or healing process of diseases. Since recent times, the term is used mainly to refer to the use of cytotoxic drugs to treat cancer.

Chemotherapy involves in taking extremely strong chemical substances in your system in order to stop the cancer from spreading and then works towards removing it from your system. This cannot be easily done and the process spreads out over many years. Once on chemotherapy, a person has to continue it until the cancer is gone from the body. Generally cancer patients spend a major part of their lives under chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can be very unpleasant as it has unfavourable side effects like nausea, depression, hair loss etc. However, only your doctor or oncologist can correctly advise you to stop or continue chemotherapy.
