I’ve experimented with drugs in the past, will that affect my treatment?

If you do not have drugs in your body, your treatment should be able to proceed smoothly.  However, it is important to tell your doctor about any past drug use—even if it was just for a short period of time. Those who have used drugs in the past may be at an increased risk to abuse drugs related to cancer treatment and your doctor will want to monitor you to make sure that doesn’t happen.
