How is cancer treated?
Cancer treatment depends on the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer
(how much it has spread), age, health status, and additional personal
characteristics. There is no single treatment
for cancer, and patients often receive a combination of therapies and
palliative care. Treatments usually fall into one of the following
categories: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy,
immunotherapy, hormone therapy, or gene therapy.
