When the diagnosis is cancer
The treatment of cancer usually involves surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these methods.
An overview for patients
Cancer cells grow by multiplying or dividing to make new tumor cells. Radiation therapy causes changes within a cancer cell to stop its development.
Determining the best approach
Cancer treatment may vary depending upon the type of cancer, the stage of cancer, and the goal of treatment.
