Treatment for cancer can be quite difficult to understand. The primary forms of treatment for cancer include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. These treatment forms can be used individually or together depending on the cancer type. We hope that these pages help to provide basic information on the different treatments available for cancer.
