Breast cancer chemotherapy uses drugs for targeting and destroying breast cancer cells in the body. These drugs are normally introduced into a vein directly via pill or needle. Chemotherapy for breast cancer is commonly used along with other treatment options, such as radiation, surgery, or hormone therapy. Receiving chemo for breast cancer increases the chance of a cure, reduces the risk of the cancer returning, reduces symptoms from the cancer and even helps people who have cancer survive for a long time with a better quality of life.
