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.
Radiotherapy uses high-energy rays to target and destroy cancer cells in the affected area.
For decades chemotherapy has been one of the main treatments used to fight cancer.
Several different types of treatment are available or in development. Find out more about: Chemotherapy and Biological/drug therapies.
