Chemotherapy

For patients facing certain types of cancer, Ascension's chemotherapy options can help stop or slow cancer cells from growing and reproducing.

About Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy — the use of medicines to fight cancer cells — is one of the most common treatments for certain types of cancer, including breast, stomach, bladder and lung. In most cases, chemotherapy works by inhibiting the process of cancer-cell division. It may be used alone or in combination with other treatments such as radiation or surgery.

If you or a loved one is battling cancer, our skilled oncologists, other doctors and nurses will work together to determine whether chemotherapy is right for you. From there they can create a customized care plan, including medicine type, treatment cycles and management of any side effects.

At every step, we’ll work to make sure your experience, from evaluation through personalized treatment and recovery, is as comfortable and seamless as possible. Our goal at Ascension is providing the best care while helping maintain your quality of life and hope for the future.
