Cancer Surgery

Treatments Related to Cancer Surgery

Surgery is not the only option for cancer patients. In fact, it is often used in conjunction with other treatment options, specifically radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles or waves to kill cancer cells, and is given to about 60 percent of all cancer patients. Chemotherapy, meanwhile, uses drugs to kill or damage cancer cells that have metastasized or spread throughout the body.
