Cancer treatments

There are several ways that cancer is treated. Each type of cancer may be treated differently, depending on what researchers have found to be the most effective treatment in killing the particular type of cancer cell. In some cases, several types of cancer treatment are given. With each type of cancer treatment, side effects occur. Members of your health-care team will talk with you about the side effects your child may experience and how you can care for your child at home.
