Review
Part 7 presents pathways of chemotherapy and
other drugs used to treat advanced colon cancer.
If one option doesn’t work or stops working,
another option is given.
There are many treatment options for advanced
colon cancer. Chemotherapy, targeted therapy,
or both are used. Some regimes cause worse
side effects than others. Your doctors will assess
your health to know which side effects you can
withstand. Their choice of treatment will be based
on treatment goals, the type and timing of prior
treatment, and which side effects the drugs
cause.
