Getting the right treatment

Surgery

Surgery is the first treatment for most types of cancer, as solid tumours can usually be surgically removed.

Two other commonly used treatment methods are:

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is a powerful cancer-killing medicine. You can find more information about chemotherapy on the NHS website.

Radiotherapy 

Radiotherapy is the controlled use of high-energy X-rays. You can find out more information about radiotherapy on the NHS website.

 

Sometimes these three can be combined to provide you with the best possible care, treatment and outcome for your health. Your specialist will advise you on the options available.

Further information about cancer treatment is available on the Macmillan website.
