Breast Cancer Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is one kind of treatment that can help manage your cancer. The word “chemo” might be scary, but at Northern Light Mercy, your care team will work to ensure you are comfortable, cared for, and confident in your treatment plan.

Chemotherapy is a word commonly associated with cancer care, and it refers to the different drugs you may receive to treat your cancer. Your treatment plan might include chemotherapy:

  • Before surgery
  • After surgery
  • If cancer has spread to other parts of your body
  • Through an IV
  • With drugs you take orally

If needed, we will work to develop a chemo plan that works for your individual cancer — that you can receive right at Northern Light Mercy Hospital.
