About the offer

Vulvar cancer treatment with chemotherapy usually prescribes to slow or stop the growth and division of cancer cells. As a rule, the types and chemotherapy regimens are determined by a consultation of oncologists and gynecologists based on the results of diagnostic studies. Two regimens of chemotherapy are widely used:Neoadjuvant regimen to reduce the size of the tumor and lymph nodes. It is often used together with radiation radiotherapy. Adjuvant mode for the destruction of cancer cells remaining after surgery. The drugs are injected intravenously or taken orally as pills, enter the bloodstream, and affect a woman's entire body. The doctor prescribes the dosage of medications and the frequency personally, taking into account the general condition of the patient and the characteristics of cancer. In the advanced stage, intravenous drugs such as fluorouracil, cisplatin, and vinorelbin can be prescribed. Despite chemotherapy being a classical cancer treatment method with numerous possible complications, it remains well-studied with proven results. Usually, treatment is carried out cyclically. The break between courses, as a rule, is about 28-30 days.
