    Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy involves treating disease with chemicals or drugs; the term most often refers to treatment of cancer. Traditional cancer chemotherapy affects all body cells to some extent, but particularly targets rapidly dividing cells such as cancer cells. Its effect on other rapidly dividing cells (hair follicles, cells lining the stomach and red blood cells) accounts for some of the common side effects.

    Modern techniques use several drugs in combination, aimed at minimising side effects while attacking the rapidly multiplying cells. Chemotherapy is tailored for each patient, depending on the type of disease and its progression. It may be used alone or in combination with other cancer therapies, such as surgery and radiotherapy.
