Cancer is complex. The same type of cancer can vary from person to person. That's why a medication regimen is tailored to the needs of the person taking it. The treatment your doctor chooses for you may depend on:
- The type of cancer you have
- The stage of the cancer (its size and how far it has spread)
- Your age and overall health
- Your treatment goals
Want to understand why the treatments were chosen for you? Ask your doctor and care team. Need help with what to say? Use these questions for your doctor.
