Treatment options

Everyone's cancer experience is different, so your treating team is best placed to advise you on the most suitable treatment for you. The treatments listed in this Navigator will not be suitable for everyone. They are listed to help you find information on treatments that have been recommended for you. You may also find it helpful to go back to the Having treatment section of this Navigator for information on chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.

If your cancer is advanced, you can also read 'Treatment for advanced cancer' (below), and go back to the previous Treatment menu to find information on decision making, clinical trials and palliative care.
