What to Expect During Chemotherapy Infusion

574 views 1 week ago
Chemotherapy, often referred to simply as chemo, is the treatment of cancer with medications that can destroy cancer cells. Chemotherapy works by interfering with the way cancer cells divide, preventing the cancer from spreading and helping to get rid of cancer cells in the body.

Before your first chemotherapy treatment, you may feel a range of emotions: anxiety, fear, or perhaps even eagerness to get started. Knowing what to expect will allow you to face the experience with greater calm and confidence.

Our goal at the Maimonides Cancer Center is to provide our patients and their families with the highest quality care. This includes administering the necessary treatments as well as providing the education and support needed throughout these treatments. Learn more: http://maimo.md/1gVlPKS
