In brief: Type and stage

Treatment will depend on the type of cancer and the stage of cancer. Your performance status ( how good your condition is/other medical problems etc) is also a very important factor that has to be calculated in when deciding the best treatment for each case.

In brief: It depends

What type of cancer.
...Is it lymphoma ? Then drugs and/or chemo regardless of the stage.... If adenocarcinoma, it all depends on the stage, early stage 1, we recommend surgery if it is too late , then it is chemotherapy or nothing. If intermediate stage, we consider chemo, surgery and radiation.
