Medication Summary

Chemotherapy as a treatment modality has historically been reserved for unresectable tumors, recurrence, or metastatic disease. Most reports suggest that chemotherapy is reserved as part of multimodality treatments. Palliative chemotherapy can be beneficial for relieving pain and obstruction or debulking tumors when surgery is not an option (either high risk or patient refusal of surgery).
