About the offer

Chemotherapy is a systematic approach to destroying bone cancer using antitumor drugs. Once in the bloodstream, chemotherapy drugs spread throughout the body and can kill cancer cells in the bone tissue. The technique is mainly prescribed for the treatment of osteosarcoma, as well as Ewing's sarcoma. As a rule, oncologists indicate chemo as an adjacent treatment before or after the surgery to shrink the tumor or as a palliative measurement to prolong the life. Drug treatment begins after the examination and the preparatory stage. First, the doctor makes up the therapy plan individually, taking into account the localization of the tumor, its type, the presence of metastases, and the patient's health condition as a whole. Then, he determines the choice of drugs and the number of courses. The drug is injected in the vein or taken with a pill. However, oncologists recommend installing a chemo-post in case many courses are set. Typically, the patient has been prescribed 2-3 cytostatic and cytotoxic drugs in combined variants. Chemotherapeutic drugs are administered intravenously. There are always breaks between treatment courses for the rest and recovery of the patient. The treatment has complications with fatigue, hair loss, vomiting, etc. At the same time, chemotherapy for bone cancer is a well-studied method with predictive results.
