What is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is the treatment of any illness with a chemical - chemo (chemical) therapy (treat). Chemotherapy could be an aspirin for a headache or antacid tablets for a stomachache. However, the term has taken on greater meaning as the complexity of cancers and their treatments has now associated this term mainly with oncology care. Specific terms for cancer chemotherapy fall into two categories: antineoplastic (meaning anti-cancer) therapy and cytotoxic (cell-killing) therapy.

Mary Anderson, Oral Chemotherapy Registered Nurse Clinician, with the Norton Cancer Institute, explains in videos the different types of chemotherapy treatments available and what to expect while going through treatments.
