Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to treat cancerous cells.

Chemotherapy can be administered intravenously (in the vein) or by pill, and usually involves a combination of drugs.

Chemotherapy treatments are often given in cycles: a treatment period, followed by a recovery period, followed by another treatment period.

Chemotherapy may be given in a variety of settings including your home, a hospital outpatient facility, a physician's office or clinic, or in a hospital.

Hospitalization may be necessary to monitor treatment and to control chemotherapy's side effects.
