This section of Younity is here to give you some background information on different types of treatment you might have, how they work, what you can expect while receiving each one, some top tips and information about potential side effects you may get too.
Your treatment is likely to change over time, and many people try multiple different treatments. Sometimes different treatments are combined; for example, you might have surgery, and also receive a chemotherapy around your surgery too (this is sometimes called adjunctive therapy).
Unfortunately, this just happens in some people, and it does not mean you’ve done anything wrong. In these instances, your healthcare team will decide whether to stop giving you a treatment based on your scans and other measurements of how your cancer is responding to treatment.
