It also harms the cells which are healthy such as those that line the mouth and intestines. Side effects generally occur while dispensing Chemotherapy. So neoadjuvant therapy can be given before surgery to reduce the risks. Clinical Oncology is the sort of Cancer treatment in which doctors use Chemotherapy as well as Radiotherapy to treat patients.
