Understanding Chemotherapy

It’s reasonable for a cancer patient to have concerns about the effects of chemotherapy on their body or appearance.

At City of Hope, we offer the counsel of caring, sympathetic experts and a library of other resources to help you understand chemotherapy treatment, its side effects and how to manage the symptoms of side effects.
