Hello,

Of course, there are the side effects of chemotherapy and it could be painful and unbearable to the patient but there is no option one could find instead of chemotherapy. To cure the malignancy chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the only option available along with surgery or without the surgery.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
