Treatment of cancer cells with lethal drugs. These drugs are administered orally or intravenously and spread throughout the body. Generally, they are given in different combinations as they are more effective when several drugs are given together at the same time. Chemotherapy is given in cures. 4-6 cycles are planned. The period between Curing is about 3 weeks. This means a total of 3-5 months of total chemotherapy time.
In some cases, in addition to the surgical treatment, it may be necessary to add medication.
In the examinations performed after the surgical treatment in patients, even if there is no cancer in any area, medication may be used as a preventive measure for some time.
This treatment is called adjuvant chemotherapy. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used to reduce the size of the tumor and make it suitable for surgery in patients with Stage 3 cancer. One benefit of neoadjuvant chemotherapy is the monitoring of the efficacy of the chemotherapy on the tumor. For more information on chemotherapy, please click here.
