 After that surgery, you may get some other treatments. Those are like the hormone, radiation, or chemotherapy. Below is more information about these procedures:

The drug can be administered by your mouth or even injected into the vein. This drug will go to the bloodstream. They will reach the cancer cells. One thing for sure is that chemotherapy can be treated differently for each patient.
