      I think it is, yes! There are other treatments such as surgery (cutting it out) and radiotherapy (hitting the cancer with radiation), hormone therapy (stopping some cancers from being able to grow), and immunotherapy (using medicines to boost our own immune system against the cancer). With a combination of a few or all of these therapies, we might be able to cure cancer without chemotherapy.
