Chemotherapy is an action / therapy gift of chemistry compound (medicine) to lessen, eliminate and pursue microbe or parasite growth in patient body.

In operabel KPD,chemoteraphy used before surgery and its called neoajuvan (KNA); after surgery, adjuvant (KA). Also it is used in non-operabel KPD or residif KPD (KPD who came back).KNA useful to shrink the tumor enough to save the breast tissue to be removed.

KA useful to kill the remaining cancer still haunts. These cells will be seen on examination of axillary lymph nodes or tumor differentiation is relatively large or very irregular. Indeed adjuvant treatment can also be done with hormones. But when estrogen receptor negative (ER -), response to treatment with either hormone will not be an option until railway.

In the non-operabel KPD and KPD residif, he would kill cancer cells. As mentioned above factors into consideration as well estrogens. However only when ER + powerful treatment can be done with hormones alone.

Various drugs are available for chemotherapy. I used to use 5Flurouracil, doxorubicin, Cyclophosphamide and paclitaxel

Single or multiple
Chemotherapy can be given a single, only one drug; or multiple, several drugs. I usually use a combination of FAC (5Flurouracil, doxorubicin, Cyclophosphamide); Doxo and paclitaxel, or paclitaxel only

How to do breast cancer chemoteraphy

Chemotherapy drugs can be eaten, medication infusion or the other. Although 5Flurouracil and Cyclophosphamide is available in the form of the drug to eat, I always give intravenous medication.

Chemotherapy drugs given regularly eaten in a few days each cycle.
Intravenous chemotherapy is given at regular intervals called cycles, every week, every 2 weeks, every 3 weeks or every 4 weeks.

How long to give chemoteraphy
To KNA and KA is usually given six to 7 times. However, for the treatment of non-operabel KPD and KPD residif, the length is determined by the development of the KPD. If there are signs of progress or no toxicity ratings will be terminated.
