There are stages of cancer and one has to take medications to avoid certain critical situations.Chemotherapy is one of the best treatment
for curing cancer, though it produce some side effect during treatment such as hairloss,weight loss,nausea &vomiting.This is normal
during treatment. But it can also be cured by following proper diet and some supplements..So no need to worry about the side effects.
Chances of curing cancer is more in this.

Chemotherapy is a systematic treatment of cancer by using chemicals in which drug enters through the blood and kills cancerous cells.
Cancer is the disease which is characterized by uncontrolled growth of cell and forms tumors..
Some side effects such as hair loss, fatigue, vomiting may occur,but this usually disappears when the treatment completes.

Yes, it is beneficial but depends that how earlier the cancer is detected..I think it is one of the best treatment for cancer. Side effects can be solved by following proper diet and medicine. Chances of prognosis rate is more by taking chemo treatment.

Hi,
   Chemotherapy medications work by interfering with cell division. Cancer cells are continuously dividing and are therefore most susceptible to these medications, but some normal cells that divide frequently (such as those lining the stomach and mouth, hair follicles, and bone marrow) are also affected. Nausea is one of the most dreaded side effects of chemotherapy. Hair loss is another side effect of chemo.
