Although chemotherapy and biotherapy medications may have risks or complications, they may still be the best methods for treating your disease.
Sometimes chemotherapy and biotherapy are the only treatments used for cancer or immune system diseases. Often other treatments will be given. These treatments may include surgery or radiation. Your doctor will create a treatment plan based on:
- The type of cancer or other disease
- Where the cancer or disease is found in your body
- The effect of the cancer or other disease on your body’s normal functions
- Your general health
