The video explains how chemotherapy works by targeting and destroying cancer cells throughout the body. It discusses different treatment goals and provides an overview of the different ways chemotherapy can be given.
Information on how to manage side effects of treatment is also covered. We have used a traffic light system to help you recognise red side-effects which you need to act on quickly and get medical help for, amber side-effects which need monitoring and some advice, and green side-effects which can be safely managed at home.
Information provided in the video is intended to be used as a guide only and does not replace the advice provided by your healthcare professionals.
It’s also a good idea to download the Chemo and you booklet to learn more about what you can expect when you go through chemotherapy.
