Blood Cancer

What is chemotherapy?

In chemotherapy, the patient is given cytostatic drugs to inhibit cell division and destroy the cancer cells. The drugs can be given in the form of tablets, an injection, or an infusion. The treatment is performed in a hospital over several cycles, with drugs administered on one or more days followed by a break for the body to recover before the next cycle begins.

Most types of blood cancer can first be treated with chemotherapy, with the aim of simply destroying the cancer cells.
