Chemotherapy is a drug taken by mouth or through your vein to treat cancer by interfering with the growth of cells that cause the disease.
Some treatments can also affect normal cell growth, which is why some patients may experience side effects.
Talk to your doctor about any possible side effects that may be related to your specific treatment.
