Description

Chemoembolization is a method used to deliver chemotherapy medication directly to liver tumors -- either primary tumors that originated in the liver, or metastases that have migrated to the liver from cancers at other sites. Chemoembolization offers several advantages over traditional systemic chemotherapy: prolonging the time the medication stays in contact with the tumor -- up to as much as a month -- increases the treatment's effectiveness.
