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. 

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.
