You might get one of those treatments as your main course of treatment if your cancer is highly susceptible to radiation therapy or chemotherapy.

Adjuvant Treatment

Adjuvant therapy aims to eliminate any cancer cells that might still exist after primary treatment to lessen the likelihood that the disease will return.
Adjuvant therapy can be applied to any cancer treatment. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormone therapy are examples of common adjuvant treatments.

Neoadjuvant therapy is similar, but it involves administering medications prior to the primary therapy in an effort to facilitate or improve the effectiveness of the latter.

Palliative Treatment

Palliative care can help with cancer-related symptoms as well as side effects from therapy. Symptom relief techniques include hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Other drugs may help with symptoms including pain and breathlessness.

Surgery’s main objective is to completely remove the malignancy, if possible.


Drugs are used in chemotherapy to kill cancer cells.

Radiation Therapy

High-powered energy beams, such as X-rays or protons, are used in radiation therapy to kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy devices can either be implanted inside or outside of your body (external beam radiation) (brachytherapy).

Bone Marrow Transplant

The substance inside your bones called bone marrow is where blood cells are created from blood stem cells. Your own bone marrow stem cells or those from a donor can be used in a bone marrow transplant, often known as a stem cell transplant.

Your doctor can treat your cancer with stronger doses of chemotherapy; thanks to a bone marrow transplant. Additionally, defective bone marrow may be replaced with it.

Hormone Therapy

Your body’s hormones can fuel certain cancers. Breast cancer and prostate cancer are two examples. It may be possible to inhibit the growth of the cancer cells by eliminating those hormones from the body or by blocking their effects.

With this procedure, cancer cells are frozen to death. A slender, wand-like needle (cryoprobe) used in cryoablation is introduced through your skin and right into the malignant tumour. The cryoprobe is pumped with a gas to freeze the tissue. The tissue is then given time to defrost. During the same therapy session, the freezing and thawing procedure is performed numerous times to destroy the cancer cells.

Radiofrequency Ablation

During this procedure, cancer cells are heated with electrical energy, which kills the cells. A tiny needle is inserted by a physician via the skin or an incision and into the cancer tissue during radiofrequency ablation. The surrounding tissue heats up when high-frequency radiation goes through the needle, destroying the cells in the area.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research projects that look at novel cancer treatment strategies. There are thousands of cancer clinical trials ongoing.

Targeted Drug Therapy

Targeted medication therapy focuses on particular cancer cell defects that enable cancer cells to survive.
