Your doctor may use chemotherapy at any stage of the cancer. It is used when there is a chance that your cancer may spread to other parts of the body and it is also done if your cancer has already spread. If your doctor finds that the cancer cells broke away from the tumour and they can travel to other parts of the body outside the breasts, chemotherapy becomes crucial. Usually, if you have early stage breast cancer, chemotherapy treatments may continue for three to six months. In the case of an advanced stage, treatment may continue beyond six months.
