Chemotherapy:

This is one of the most common types of cancer treatment that utilizes a series of medications to destroy existing cancer cells or slow down the growth of rapidly dividing cancer cells. The drugs in chemotherapy are either used alone or in combination with other drugs that help in treating a wide spectrum of cancers. Depending on the case, chemotherapy can be recommended before or after cancer surgery thus ensuring no cancer cell survives. While it is an extremely efficient treatment modality in the cure of cancer, it has its list of side effects. 

Hormone therapy:

Hormones are some of the most important chemical substances in the human body. Some cancers depend on hormones such as oestrogen and progesterone to proliferate. This type of therapy utilizes some groups of medications that block or reduce the production levels of hormones in the body that decreases the chance of growth cancers of certain organs like the breasts, uterus, ovaries, and prostate gland.

Immunotherapy:

These are anti-cancer drugs that have been developed to slow down the growth and spread of cancer in the body by the activation of the natural immune system. Immunotherapy works best when combined with chemotherapy and is used to treat cancers such as melanoma.
