Treatments & follow-ups


Chemotherapy medications can be given intravenously (into a vein), through an intravenous (IV) tube, or by using a syringe as an intramuscular (into the muscle) or subcutaneous (under the skin) injection. Chemotherapy drugs can also be given orally as a pill or liquid.

The procedure used to give you your drugs depends on the type of cancer and chemotherapy.

You may receive your treatment in a hospital, clinic, doctor’s office, or at home.
