At Amethyst, we mainly focus on radiation therapy, which is used to treat about 60% of people at some point during their cancer treatment. In some of our centres, we also offer chemotherapy, in partnership with public or private hospitals, to provide integrated patient care.
Along with surgery and radiotherapy, chemotherapy is a widely used treatment to cure cancer diseases.
Chemotherapy aims to eliminate cancer cells throughout the body, either by directly destroying them or by preventing them from multiplying. Chemotherapy is therefore a treatment that involves the use of drugs against cancer cells. There are many drugs adapted to each situation: each cancer is particular and requires the appropriate treatment.
Chemotherapy is recommended to treat cancer as the first step before surgery or simply as a preventive measure after removing a primary tumour.
