Treatment

Cancer Treatment Info

Find out about the different treatments that are available to beat cancer.

This section is dedicated to cancer care and treatment. It will detail information about current therapies, as well as advances and innovations in new treatments.

There is no single treatment for cancer. Each individual case of cancer is carefully assessed by clinicians who will use different treatments, or a combination of them, to achieve the best outcome.
Some of these treatment options include the following: surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and biological therapies.
