Chemotherapy information sheets
Chemotherapy is a type of systemic anti-cancer therapy (SACT). Chemotherapy information sheets provide details about individual chemotherapy treatments. Your doctor will discuss your treatment with you when you come to The Christie.
Each information sheet includes:
- name of drugs
- the way the drugs are given, for example, injection or via a drip
- treatment cycle (which days or weeks you have treatment and how long treatment lasts)
- side effects and how to cope
- contact numbers
Click on the name of the treatment you wish to view.
This leaflet is offered as a guide to you and your family. The possible benefits of treatment vary: for some people chemotherapy may reduce the risk of the cancer coming back, for others chemotherapy may control the cancer and its symptoms.
