For all types of cancer, the panoply of treatments is increasing and diversifying, new therapeutic approaches are emerging, and classic treatments are being perfected. More effective, less toxic and so better tolerated, these treatments, whether radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or surgery preserve the affected organ, improve surveillance, and guarantee a better quality of life for the patient.
