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, most people use the word chemotherapy when referring specifically to drug treatments for cancer that destroy cancer cells by stopping their ability to grow and divide.
