Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs to kill cancer cells that may have spread to other organs. Chemotherapy is sometimes given after surgery to reduce the chance of cancer returning.

The drugs are often injected into the bloodstream so that they can reach distant areas of the body. One of our medical oncologists may meet with you to discuss possible chemotherapy. Once treatment beings, the medical oncologist monitors you throughout your progress. Whenever possible, we coordinate treatment through outreach centers so that patients can remain close to home during therapy. Chemotherapy is available at our Main Campus in Lebanon, NH, and also at regional Cancer Center locations in Keene, Manchester, and Nashua, NH, and St. Johnsbury, VT.
