To begin with, it's important to talk to your cancer specialist. You can then both decide whether it really is the best treatment for you.
Choosing the best treatment will depend on a number of factors, such as:
- the type and stage of cancer you have
- any other treatments you've had
- whether there are any other treatments that might be suitable
- what the side effects of this particular treatment are likely to be.
If you decide to apply to your local health body for a drug or treatment, you'll need to follow the procedures they set out. Please read the information for your region below.
