Cancer chemotherapy. Nurse talking to a patient who is receiving anti-cancer drugs through an intravenous (IV) drip in her hand. A wide range of chemotherapy drugs are used, sometimes in combination with other treatments such as radiotherapy or surgery. Chemotherapy may be used to remove a cancer, remove traces of cancer remaining after surgery, or simply prolong life in patients with inoperable tumours. Use of an IV drip is the most common chemotherapy method. Side- effects of chemotherapy drugs can include loss of hair, nausea and tiredness.
