Chemotherapy is defined in this video as the medical treatment that targets damaged cells that rapidly divide commonly seen in cancerous and hair cells. Though there are over 100 different types of chemotherapy that all fight cancer, the type in which a patient receives it dependent on their medical situation. The most common way that chemotherapy is administered is intravenously. However, oral chemotherapy is becoming increasingly prevalent. Patients go through different rounds of the treatment but usually no more than eight sessions within a set. This is dependent on how well the body responds to the chemotherapy. Though the video repeatedly states that the dangers of chemotherapy are uncommon they acknowledged the side effects that may take place. Nausea, fatigue, and tingling in the extremities are examples of short term effects. However, long term chemotherapy can cause problems with heart as well as kidney function possibly causing failure of these organs. Also, there is the possibility of developing a blood cancer such as leukemia as a result of the treatment.
