HI there,
I can understand that you are worried. But it is difficult to suggest chemotherapy without a proper evaluation. Stage 4 is an advanced stage of the disease. Chemotherapy is used to shrink tumor size, or slow tumour growth. Chemotherapy is often applied after surgery (adjuvant), before surgery (neoadjuvant), or as the primary therapy (palliative). Chemotherapy has been shown in clinical trials to improve survival and/or reduce mortality rate. Various drugs available are 5-fluorouracil, capecitabine, Leucovorin, Oxaliplatin etc. These have to be taken under close medical supervision.
Take care.
