    Default Other than cancer what would you have chemotherapy for

    Is there anything other than cancer which is treated with chemotherapy or is cancer the only thing? Im sure it must be used on other diseases/ conditions but is it?

    Absolutely everything, because for cancer you have cytotoxic chemotherapy. It's just shortened to chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is just treatment with chemicals - ie drugs

    Many autoimmune disorders are treated with lower levels of chemo. RA, lupus, myositis, and sarcoidosis are a few that they will give you chemo for if for some reason you cannot take steroids.
