Yes and no: It depends on the stage of cancer. In general chemotherapy can help but it is not always curative especially for advanced or recurrent cancers. Early cancers have much better luck with combined use of radiation, surgery and chemotherapy. Once it has a recurrence then the cancer is rarely curable with the available chemotherapy drugs.
