Treatment modality used for cancer depends on many factors such as the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer (how much it has spread), age, and overall health of the patient. No one single treatment has been shown to be effective for all types of cancer or all patients with one kind of cancer. Most patients are given a combination of therapies and palliative care as needed. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, or gene therapy are the different treatment modalities for cancer.
