Chemotherapy is a mainstay and a backbone of any cancer treatment. In the 19th century, chemotherapy was used only to treat patients with advanced stages of cancer i.e. stage III or stage IV cancers. Today, chemotherapy is recommended to treat early stages of cancer. When chemotherapy is combined with other modalities of cancer treatments like surgery or radiation therapy produces synergistic effect to offers patients best treatment outcomes.
Newer therapies like targeted therapy and immunotherapy are also given in combination or in sequence of chemotherapy. It has established to become an inescapable necessity for the treatment of cancer in many cases.
