Colon cancer chemotherapy treats colon cancer with drugs that can destroy colon cancer cells by impeding their growth and reproduction. These drugs often are called anticancer drugs. Colon cancer chemotherapy drugs are given intravenously, by injection or by mouth. Chemotherapy can be used as a standalone colon cancer treatment. It may also be used in conjunction with radiation therapy or surgery.
Colon cancer chemotherapy is often associated with unpleasant side effects, including nausea, vomiting, hair loss and mouth sores. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we are dedicated to leveraging new delivery protocols that help reduce related side effects and make your overall chemotherapy treatment more bearable.
