Chemotherapy kills cancer cells
If you and your doctor choose chemotherapy as a treatment option, you probably have concerns – about how it works, how your body reacts, what you can do to remain strong. That's why our cancer care team at Goshen Center for Cancer Care makes sure we take care of your health and well-being at the same time we attack your cancer.
Our medical oncologists may recommend chemotherapy alone or in conjunction with radiation therapy or surgery, depending on the kind of cancer and your condition. To help prevent or alleviate unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy, we use new and effective approaches that make treatment as painless as possible.
Unparalleled expertise in one place
We approach drug therapies differently than other cancer centers in our region. Here, our dedicated team of oncologists works together every day to combine the most effective treatments possible to attack the cancer and take care of your well-being. We also continually research ways to develop new delivery methods that improve treatment outcomes and reduce side effects of chemotherapy.
Types of drug therapies
- Biologic therapy – combines compounds or derivatives found in the body to fight cancer and enhance the immune system.
- Chemoembolization – uses a foreign substance injected into the tumor to stop blood flow.
- Chemotherapy – delivers powerful drugs and chemical substances into the body to destroy fast-growing cancer cells by impeding their growth and reproduction.
- Intra-arterial hepatic chemotherapy – releases continuous chemotherapy directly to the liver via the hepatic artery.
- Intra-peritoneal chemotherapy – delivers chemotherapy directly into the peritoneum in high concentrations with or without high temperatures.
- Targeted therapy – exploits abnormalities in cancer cells to destroy tumors.
