Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy at Rivers Hospital

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells in your body. It can be used both before and after surgery and is sometimes given at the same time as radiotherapy. Because cancer cells can break away from the main tumour, circulate round the body and start forming a secondary cancer somewhere else, doctors often recommend chemotherapy to give you the best chance of eliminating all these cancer cells.

Ramsay hospitals offers a range of screening and diagnostic procedures at a time convenient to you, and also offers treatment for some of the most common types of cancer. We offer the support of multi-disciplinary teams who will be working together to ensure you get the care which is right for you.
