One thought on “What are the potential side effects of chemotherapy drugs?

  1. Arti says:

    When breast cancer is localized only to the breast or lymph nodes, chemotherapy may be given after a lumpectomy or mastectomy. This is known as adjuvant treatment and may help reduce the chance of breast cancer recurrence. a few people may think that their chemotherapy treatment is not working if they do not experience side effects. However, this is a myth. The specific side effects you may experience will depend on the type and amount of medications you are given and how long you are taking them. Chemotherapy drugs are given intravenously (directly into the vein) or orally (by mouth). As a result, chemotherapy is considered a systemic form of breast cancer treatment. Once the drugs enter the bloodstream, they are delivered to all parts of the body to reach cancer cells that may have spread beyond the breast.
