Chemotherapy drugs are often used to kill cancer cells that are dispersed throughout the body or have spread to multiple sites. They may also be used to shrink a tumor before surgery or radiation treatment, destroy cancer cells that remain after surgery or radiation therapy, or help radiation and biological therapies work better.

Biological therapies (biotherapies, for short) may either. Chemotherapy (also called chemo) is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. How does chemotherapy work. Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, which grow and divide quickly.
