Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy for breast cancer is given if there is concern that the cancer might recur or spread to other parts of the body.

For some women, chemotherapy is given before surgery to reduce the size of the tumor to make it easier to remove.

Side-Effects of Chemotherapy
Side effects depend on the drugs used, but common side-effects include:

  • Hair loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Slight increased risk of infection
