Treatment is determined not only by the type and stage of cancer, but also by what treatments and services a person chooses. The three main ways to treat cancer are through surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Sometimes a combination of all three is used.
“Patients should whenever possible, have access to the treatment option of their choice. Some patients will always choose the option of receiving treatment in clinic, as they are nervous and want support.”
