One of the most common treatments for cancer is chemotherapy. Chemotherapy (chemo) is a type of treatment that includes a medication or combination of medications to treat cancer. The goal of chemo is to stop or slow the growth of cancer cells.
At OHC, we focus on treating your cancer as well as the effect it may have on your body and your life. It’s important for us to provide you with the best medicine available, like chemotherapy, and helping with possible side effects, like nausea and fatigue. Before you begin your treatment, your OHC doctor will:
- Explain the cancer diagnosis and stage (the extent of the cancer)
- Discuss with you and your family all treatment options and recommended treatment strategy
- Work with a multi-disciplinary care team who specialize in different areas of care to deliver your treatment and maintain your quality of life by managing pain and other symptoms or side effects
- Listen to your needs and address your concerns with compassion and understanding
For more information about chemotherapy and other treatments, call us at 1-800-710-4674. If you are a new patient or would like a second opinion, we’d be happy to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors. If you’re a current patient and would like more information or have questions about your chemotherapy, talk with your OHC doctor, nurse or any member of the OHC team.
