Your cancer treatment will depend on the type of cancer you have.
Your medical team will recommend treatment based on what will give you the best outcome, where the cancer is, whether and how the cancer has spread, your general health and your preferences.
The treatment options you are offered will depend on the guidelines for best practice for the type of cancer you have.
For more information about treatment speak to your treatment team or call Cancer Council 13 11 20.
