There are many different treatments for cancer. The main ones include:
- Surgery - this varies according to the type of cancer you have, where it is, and your general health. Details of the surgery for different cancers can be found on our website. Information can also be found via the Macmillan Cancer Support website.
For details about specific drugs and chemotherapy treatment please contact us for a fact sheet about that drug/ drug combination.
The treatment you may have will depend on the type of cancer you have and the characteristics this has in your particular case. The team caring for you will need to obtain as much information about your cancer as they can before advising on a treatment plan. Please do contact your team if you are worried or anxious about anything. Please remember that everyone is treated as an individual.
Looking up the different treatments on our website or reading the CancerBACUP booklets can help you gain more information and plan any questions you may wish to ask the team caring for you.
