How Cancer Treated

Cancer are usually treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy (radiotherapy). Other drug treatments, such as hormone therapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy, can also be used to treat some types of cancer. These treatments may be used on their own or in combination.

Type of Cancer Treatment

  1. Surgery - An operation to remove cancer or repair a part of the body affected by cancer.
  2. Drugs Therapies - Drugs that enter the bloodstream so the treatment can travel throughout the body. This is called systematic treatment, and includes: Chemotherapy, Hormone Therapy, Immunotherapy and Targeted Therapy.
  3. Radiation Therapy - The use of targeted radiation to kill or damage cancer cells so they cannot grow, multiply or spread. Treatment aims to affect only the part of the body where the radiation is targeted.


Radiation as a Therapy

  1. Radiation Therapy damages cells by destroying the genetic material that controls how cells grow and divide
  2. Both healthy and cancerous cells are damaged by radiation therapy
  3. The goal of radiation therapy is to destroy as few normal, healthy cells as possible
  4. Normal cells can repair much of the damage caused by radiation
