The answer

FEC chemotherapy is a commonly used to treat breast cancer. It involves 3 different drugs starting with the letters FEC- Fluorouracil, Epirubicin and Cyclophosphamide. Chemotherapy is very a specialised treatment that is only prescribed by consultants that have been highly trained to use them. I suggest if you have any questions about these type of treatments, you go back to speak to your consultant or nurse specialist about them.
